This spirited Necklace showcases 2 strands of Apple Coral Heishi, blended with Turquoise, Chrysocolla and Sterling Silver. The 6.5mm Coral Heishi is square cut — an uncommon find — and is polished to a soft sheen. The Coral is paired with eye-catching and complementary elements, including 2 Turquoise and Sterling Silver Inlaid Cylinder Beads by jewelry artist David R. Freeland Jr. The Cylinder Beads vary in design; the 1st is 9-by-14mm with a Sterling Silver Core and 10 rectangles of inlaid Turquoise and Mother of Pearl, while the 2nd is 12-by-14mm and features 4 squares of Turquoise set in raised Sterling Silver Bezels. Both pieces are meticulously crafted and are beautiful examples of Freeland's exceptional work. The Inlaid Cylinders are paired with 12mm blue Chrysocolla Squares, and 6 and 8mm Turquoise Rondelles. The blue tones contrast nicely with the rich Coral. The stones are highlighted by Ornate Sterling Silver Beads, including 10-by-11mm Tiered Bicones and 7-by-11mm Stamped Box Beads. At the top of the Necklace the 2 strands of Apple Coral Heishi transition to 2 strands of Turquoise Rondelles, streamlining the silhouette and adding a color pop and design interest. The Necklace is finished with Sterling Rounds and Wrapped Sterling Toggle Clasp, and adorned with a Southwest Designs Sterling Charm. The piece weighs 112 grams and the Necklace strands are 26-1/2 inches long.
