This impressive Necklace showcases 3 strands of Turquoise Bamboo. The "Bamboo" style is a combination of Turquoise Cylinders and Rondelles — an uncommon cut with great visual appeal. The Cylinders are 6-by-8.5mm in dimension and the Rondelles are 7mm; they display an attractive multi-hued blend of blues, greens and golden brown. The Turquoise is spaced with 3mm dark brown Olive Shell Heishi, enhancing the structure and adding flexibility to the Necklace. Bamboo Coral Heishi enlivens the design, with the 6.5mm discs adding vibrant coral-red highlights.
The bottom of the Necklace is ornamented with Turquoise Briolette, creating a segue to a 3-Loop Turquoise Long Chip Jacla. The Long Chip is graduated — ranging in length from 6-to-20mm — and displays a range of blue hues with gray matrix. It is beautifully crafted and polished to a soft sheen. The Long Chip is paired with Bamboo Coral Heishi and drapes from a 13mm Hill Tribe Silver Stamped Round. The Turquoise Bamboo, Turquoise Chip, Coral Heishi and Silver create a beautiful palette of complementary shapes, colors and textures. A visual delight! The Necklace is finished with 3 and 4mm translucent green Fire Polished Glass Ovals and a Hammered Sterling Silver Toggle Clasp. It is adorned with a Southwest Designs Sterling Charm. The piece weighs 167 grams (about 6 ounces) and is 23-1/2 inches long plus the Jacla, which is an additional 5-1/4 inches in length (when wearing, a vertical length of about 14-1/2 inches).
