The Hill tribe silver I use is very expensive. This style necklace with the pure silver cost over $200 so I had the triangles cast out of a base metal and plated in silver so that I could bring the charge down. Well, it turns out the more expensive version still sells better so I wanted to move these out so I put them on sale. They are approximately 16 inches with 2 inches of extender chain. I have also used pyrite, amethyst, coral chrysacolla, ruby, labradorite and one purple turquoise bead.
