A stunning African turquoise stone was combined with hand fabricated sterling silver to create this striking necklace. This natural stone has an earthy, organic feel -- with beautiful hues of blue and green, along with a natural matrix of black veining. The earthiness of the turquoise blends well with the organic texture of the silver. A unique, one-of-a-kind piece that is sure to make a bold, striking statement!

Although commonly known as African turquoise, this natural stone is a type of jasper found in Africa. It has a matrix structure similar to turquoise - with wonderful hues of green and blue, along with black and brown inclusions.

I created a sterling silver bail to surround the stone and then wrapped it securely with sterling silver wire. The metal was hammered for an earthy, organic texture - and then given a soft charcoal patina to enhance the rich detail.

MEASUREMENTS: Pendant measures 2-3/4" in length and 1-1/4" at widest point.

► CHAIN OPTIONS: This pendant may be purchased WITH OR WITHOUT the chain. If you select the "With Sterling Chain" option, it will come on the chain featured in the photos - which is an 18" oxidized solid sterling silver rope chain with lobster claw closure.
