This genuine American turquoise necklace is composed of 10 strands that drape in an elegant waterfall. Lavender and turquoise-colored Czech glass seed beads intersperse with natural turquoise heishi and 14kt gold vermeil beads from Bali, Indonesia. Closes in the back with artisan brass cones and hook clasp with natural patina. Shortest strand measures 20 inches (50.8 cm).
The largest turquoise heishi on this necklace are from the Kingman mine. The smaller heishi are from Mexico's Nacozari mine. The nuggets above the brass cones are Sleeping Beauty mine turquoise. All turquoises in this necklace have not been color treated in any way and have been stabilized.
As is characteristic of my work, I spent over 10 hours composing this turquoise waterfall necklace with meticulous detail. Any liquid silver or gemstone jewelry takes a great amount of patience and precision to make sure everything lays as it should, and I take pride in using the best professional nylon-coated silver-plated steel beading wire for this piece so that it will last a lifetime.
