These are Fair Trade pendants which were constructed from alpaca silver and recycled rubber. Alpaca silver is a mix of predominately copper and nickel with other possible metals including zinc, tin or cadmium. Alpaca silver, also known as German silver, has the appearance of a high polished sterling silver. It has a wonderful shine and is resistant to rust or tarnishing. It can easily be cleaned with a mild soap or lemon juice if needed.
Each pendant is decorated with ornate metal work and either a gemstone or glass cabochon.
They were handmade by a group of highly skilled artisans from Peru.

Many of the things you will find in my shop are vintage, ethnic items. Please keep in mind that these are often made by primitive people under primitive circumstances and are rarely what we would consider to be perfect. There may be mismatched jewels, a definite patina and often there are irregularities in the metal. This is common and should be expected with this type of jewelry. I leave the patina in place for those who prefer an aged appearance. Most items can be polished with a mild jewelry cleaner if that is your preference.
