Turquoise is one of the oldest stone in man's history, the talisman of kings, shamans, and warriors. It is a stone of protection, strong energy. Truly on of my favorite materials! I use only solid cabachons in my work, no backing on this round/oval stone. It is a brilliant turquoise color with just a few lovely variants of brown markings.
It's built from sterling silver that I shape and pattern with my antique hammers. The result is a softly textured surface that complements the earthy stone. A chunky half loop bail has 3 jump rings and are all finished with an oxidized patina and a hand polish. This stunning necklace resonates with my authentic, organic style. Rugged and interesting in its unusual shape, other chain options are available as well as lengths.
Direct from the Kingman mine this turquoise has character and substance.
