This terrific Necklace showcases a Sterling Silver and Turquoise Tree Pendant by Nevada Silversmith Jim Daggett. The Pendant is gracefully shaped with 11 branches and a trunk, and decorated with 2 triangular-shaped Kingman Turquoise Stones. The stones are bright turquoise-blue with traces of golden-brown and are set in raised Sterling Silver Bezels. The Tree has also been ornamented with Sterling Silver Wire that traces the branches, providing visual interest. The base Sterling Silver plate has been stamped, adding texture. The Pendant hangs from a custom Bail and is stamped on the back with the artist's hallmark and "Sterling." We've paired the Sterling Silver & Turquoise Tree Pendant with 3 Strands of Sleeping Beauty Turquoise Coin Beads, from the Sleeping Beauty Mine in Globe, Arizona. Like the Pendant Stones, the Sleeping Beauty Turquoise is bright blue in color and exhibits trace golden-brown matrix. The Turquoise Coins are fairly consistent in size, ranging from 12-to-14mm in diameter. Between each Stone we've placed small pieces of 3mm Olive Shell Heishi, adding depth to the color palette and increasing design interest. At the top of the Necklace the Sleeping Beauty Turquoise transitions to Olive Shell Heishi, streamlining the Necklace profile and ensuring wearer comfort. The Necklace is finished with Sterling Silver Rounds and Toggle Clasp and adorned with a Southwest Designs Sterling Charm. The piece weighs 126 grams and the 3 Necklace Strands are 22", 23" and 24" long plus the Pendant, which is 2-7/8" by 1-1/2" including a 3/8" Bail. Pair the Necklace with its matching 3-Strand Sleeping Beauty Turquoise Bracelet with Olive Shell Heishi & Sterling.
