This winning Necklace showcases 3 strands of multi-hued Turquoise in eye-catching shapes and sizes. Each of the Necklace strands has a principal design element, including Turquoise Talismans (also known as Fetishes), Turquoise Rounds, and Turquoise Briolette. The Talisman strand has 12 Fetishes, carved in the shapes of Rabbits, Lions and Bears. They are 5/8-inch long and a beautiful blue-green with brown spiderweb matrix. A second strand has eleven 9.5mm Turquoise Rounds, in cerulean blue and blue-green with attractive matrix in varying patterns. The third strand displays Turquoise Briolette – blue-green with gray matrix – which is end-drilled so that the stone sits at a 90-degree angle. The primary stones are paired with 6mm Turquoise Rounds, 6mm Funky Turquoise Heishi (named due to its many-sided cut), translucent gray Fire Polished Glass Ovals, and 6mm blue Crystal Rounds. The Fire Polished Glass and Crystal Rounds are translucent, giving off a subtle sparkle. All of these complementary components dance along strands of 3mm Olive Shell Heishi, which provides an attractive backdrop for the vibrant blue Turquoise and Crystal stones.
We've paired the Turquoise and Crystal with eight Sterling Silver Leaf Charms, which shine brightly against the darker stones. The Leaves are 8-by-23mm in dimension, and are stamped on both sides with realistic looking ribs and veins. The Leaf Charms are accompanied by six 10.5mm Stamped Sterling Silver Rondelle Beads, handcrafted by Navajo artist Jan Mariano. The beads are beautifully made and polished to a fine sheen. The multi-faceted combination of Turquoise, Crystal and Sterling Silver produces a stand-out Necklace that is beautiful to look at and a delight to wear. At the top of the Necklace the 3 strands of Turquoise transition to 3 strands of Olive Shell Heishi, streamlining the silhouette and ensuring wearer comfort. The Necklace is finished with a Hammered Sterling Silver Toggle Clasp and adorned with a Southwest Designs Sterling Charm. The piece weighs 90 grams and is 26-1/4 inches long (when wearing, a vertical length of about 10 inches).
