This vibrant necklace was created using hollow Lampworked glass beads, disk beads, silver wire and a beautiful silver chain. The vivid color yet simplicity of this piece would be an asset to any jewlery box and would be a great project for beginners. Originally published in Creative Jewelry, 2009.

It is a great necklace & looks like you could wear it with many outfits. I will definetely be making one similar but what I need to know is, What is German Silver? How does it compare to sterling or plated? Heather

German Silver is not actually silver at all. I know that nickel is the main "ingredient" if not the only one.. i do know it is inexpensive..i bought some from my instructor at one of my jewelry workshop classes at my local "adult ed" classes so that's where i got my info....great place to learn new techniques and get the opportunity to use machinery most of us could not afford, much less have room for..check your local city college to see if they have "continuing or adult ed classes" very cheap, sometimes free!

FYI - German silver, also called nickel silver. Def. from Wikipedia: Nickel silver is a metal alloy of copper with nickel and often but not always zinc. The usual formulation is 60% / 20% / 20% Copper / Nickel / Zinc It is named for its silvery appearance, but contains no elemental silver unless plated. Other common names for this alloy are German silver, paktong, new silver and alpacca (or alpaca).
