This handcrafted pendant features four incredible stones; a stunning piece of Dry Creek Turquoise, and three gorgeous marquise-shaped Moonstones, each with their own stunning flashes of colour. The setting itself has been made using a combination of fine and sterling silver, including a thick sterling silver hand-sawed backing, fine silver bezels around each stone, and sterling silver trims and accents. The setting has then been sanded smooth, oxidized darker in parts for contrast, polished to a high shine, and strung onto a 72cm adjustable black organic cotton cord. This means that it can be worn as a choker, a long layering necklace, and anything in between! Like all my work, this pendant is a completely unique piece made entirely by hand using recycled silver, cruelty-free materials, and environmentally-friendly methods!

💎 DRY CREEK TURQUOISE LORE:
Turquoise is perhaps the oldest stone in man's history, the talisman of kings, shamans, and warriors.
Wearing Turquoise is said to bring strength, protection from harm, psychic sensitivity and good fortune. It is a symbol of friendship, aids wearers while traveling and brings peace to the home.
Dry Creek Turquoise comes from a small Turquoise mine outside of Austin, Nevada in Lander County. It is not treated or colour enhanced and is revered for its light whitish - blue Turquoise color. Dry Creek Turquoise has gained much popularity over the years with its creamy white or pale blue colouring, and golden to cocoa brown matrix. High grade Dry Creek Turquoise has beautiful light brown, golden yellow or orange webbed matrix. Dry Creek Turquoise is also referred to as "Sacred Buffalo" Turquoise.
💎 MOONSTONE LORE:
Rich in historical significance, Moonstone was admired by the Romans for over 2000 years, as they believed it was born from solidified rays of the moon.
Legendary as 'The Traveller's Stone,' Moonstone is great for protection at night or on the water. It is a great stone to keep during a first love or any new relationship. It helps creativity, confidence and self expression, and helps its wearer be more successful in their day to day working activities.
