STRIDE is an extra generous silver chain made from 100% recycled Argentium silver, a silver that does not tarnish as quickly as other types of silver. Hand-made, fused and hammered on both sides.measuring around 100 cm. It is made up of four different sections connected with fused and hammered hand made silver rings – two smaller ones on the side and one heavier, larger one in the center. The main part is a medium weight Belcher chain, a flexible type of chain that is strong but still looks good when doubled. The part connecting to the larger ring is an airier round chain, with rings wide enough for the two lobster clasps to connect to.
STRIDE can be worn in many ways. In its full length with the large ring as a pendant; with the ring in the back and the clasps connected to a centerpiece; or with the chain pulled through the centerpiece and connected higher up.
As STRIDE is a highly adjustable chain it’s easy to find a length that fits. The full length varies from around 100 cm down to 80 and 60 cm with one or both clasps pulled through a centerpiece. If you connect both clasps to the larger ring, the chain will measure around 50 cm.
Please note that measurements may vary slightly and that the size of the centerpiece attached will affect the full length of the necklace.
Pendants are sold separately
