'Macro' Silver necklace - WIP and finished product

This silver necklace I made during the last two weeks. I was inspired by macro-images of silver.
The width of each little 'pebble' varies between 0,5 to 1cm and also differ in height. The necklace has a matte finish.
It was a bumpy road, but in the end I'm glad it's wearable and I didn't melt it together.
While being 925 sterling silver and cast by myself, it tends to become darker when exposed to the air. Searching for a solution for that part but with a cotton cloth or silver cloth it solves temporarily the problem.
This was made as a birthday gift, but I'm making simpeler and easier to wear ones for my shop!
Here are some photos of the wip and finished product.
