This striking Necklace features a Sterling Silver Dragonfly Pendant handcrafted by the Majul family of Taxco, Mexico. The Dragonfly is beautifully rendered with artful details; the rear pair of wings are stamped and lightly oxidized, contrasting with the front wings which are curved and brightly polished. The varying textures add to the visual appeal of the piece. We've paired the Sterling Dragonfly with four strands of 5.5mm Turquoise Cubes and 5-by-7mm Pilot Mountain Turquoise Rectangles (NV). The Turquoise is light blue to mid-blue in color with golden brown matrix. The smaller stones are accented by eight 12-by-12mm handcut and polished Kingman Turquoise Cubes, which were crafted from rough Kingman Turquoise block. The Turquoise is highlighted by blue-and-tan 11mm Porcelain Cubes and 8mm Bench-made Sterling Silver Rounds. The stones are integrated with 3mm Olive Shell Heishi, adding color depth and increasing the flexibility of the piece. At the top of the Necklace the four strands of Turquoise transition to four strands of Olive Shell Heishi, streamlining the design. The Necklace is finished with Sterling Silver Rounds and Toggle Clasp and adorned with a Southwest Designs Sterling Charm. The piece weighs 132 grams and is 22-1/2 inches long plus the Pendant, which is 2-3/4 inches by 2-3/4 inches including the Bail.
