Up Up and Away with this delightful sterling silver hot air balloon charm. Add the balloon to your favorite charm bracelet or wear on a chain as a necklace.
Solid Sterling Silver, not plated silver, no mystery metals!
Add a sterling silver chain to your order to wear your charm as a pendant. You can purchase an 18 inch sterling silver rolo chain in my shop.
This charm is made from sterling silver recycled in my studio. I melt my silver scraps in to a ball, then use a hydraulic press and a steel shot plate to form the balloon impression. After trimming excess silver and smoothing the edges, I solder on a half-jump ring, oxidize, tumble, and add a sterling silver split jump ring.
This charm is about 3/4" tall and 1/2" wide. It's thick, too, roughly 3/16" to 1/4" thick. Because each balloon is hand formed, the overall thickness may vary.
CHAIN NOT INCLUDED
Your charm is made to order at the Hennessey Jewelry studio in Portland Maine. Please allow up to two weeks for your charm to be made. You may contact me for current shipping times.
