Approximately 1.25 inch in length. Sterling and vermeil wire with safety hook in back. Bottom triangle has movement. Growing up in Europe and Asia, I became enthralled with jewelry. In South Korea, I learned to cut gems at a lapidary shop when I was twelve and to cast and construct jewelry shortly after that. My formal education was in Art at several universities, finishing with a Masters of Fine Arts in Goldsmithing from SUNY New Paltz in New York. A couple of weeks after I graduated I was in my first craft show, and haven�t stopped yet.
