Sterling Silver Pendant Necklace with African Turquoise Stone - Handmade Silver Jewelry
This unique handmade pendant features hand fabricated sterling silver, accented with a gorgeous African turquoise stone. I created the pendant out of solid sterling silver sheet; hammered and stamped the silver to create the texture; and then gave it a charcoal patina to enhance the detail. The stone was securely wrapped onto the metal with "abstract" twists of sterling silver wire which echoes the spiral pattern stamped into the metal. A smaller African turquoise stone was added to dangle from the bottom.
Although commonly known as African turquoise, this natural stone is a type of jasper found in Africa. It has a matrix structure similar to turquoise - with gorgeous shades of blue and green, along with earthy inclusions of brown and black.
MEASUREMENTS: Pendant measures 3” in length and 1-1/4” at widest point.
***** CHAIN OPTIONS: This pendant may be purchased WITH OR WITHOUT the chain.
If you select the "With Sterling Chain" option, it will come on the chain featured in the photos - which is an 18" solid sterling silver snake chain with lobster claw closure.
This necklace has matching earrings which are sold separately: www.silverandearth.com/product/sterling-silver-earrings-african-turquoise-stones-handmade-artisan-jewelry
PLEASE NOTE: Please refer to the measurements above. Photos are enlarged to show the details.
All of my jewelry is my own original design and handcrafted by me in Albuquerque, New Mexico, USA.
