Sterling Silver & Turquoise Necklace - Big Bold Statement Necklace
This handcrafted sterling silver and turquoise necklace is big, bold and striking .... and will make quite a statement. It features a large turquoise stone showcased against textured sterling silver. The stone is a stunning shade of sky blue, along with a matrix of brownish black veining. This type of turquoise is known as "redskin" turquoise because the matrix has a brownish red hue. This is such a gorgeous stone with its own unique characteristics - you can be assured you'll be wearing a one-of-a-kind piece.
I designed the shape of the pendant to flow with the shape of the stone; sawed it out of solid sterling silver sheet; and hand filed all of the edges until meticulously smooth. I hammered the metal to create an earthy, organic texture --- and then oxidized, buffed and polished it to bring out the detail. The rustic texture of the silver blends well with the natural matrix of the stone. The turquoise is securely wrapped onto the pendant with abstract twists of sterling silver wire. It comes on a 18" turquoise heishi necklace which has a lobster claw closure.
MEASUREMENTS: 3-1/2" in length and 1-5/8" at widest point. It is signed on the back with my initials and sterling stamp.
✤ OPTIONS: This pendant may be purchased WITH OR WITHOUT the turquoise heishi necklace.
