This handcrafted pendant features the most gorgeous piece of blue Campitos Turquoise, paired with a lovely pink faceted Rose Quartz. The pendant setting has been made with a solid sterling silver bail, a thick sterling silver hand-sawed backing, sterling silver bezels around each stone and sterling silver trims and accents. It has then been sanded, oxidised in parts for contrast, and polished to a high shine. It hangs from a 72cm adjustable organic cotton cord, which means it can be worn as a choker, a long layering necklace and everything 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!
