This handcrafted Turquoise pendant features one of the most gorgeous piece of Royston Turquoise that I have ever worked with! The stone itself measures approximately 19m x 16mm, and it is the most incredible blue and green under a stunning caramel-brown matrix. It setting been made with a solid sterling silver 16 gauge (1.4mm) bail, a thick sterling silver backing. a fine silver bezel, a sterling silver twisted trim, and is finished with a beautiful solid sterling flower between two molten silver spheres. The setting has then been sanded smooth, oxidised, polished, and strung onto a 72cm adjustable black vegan cord. This means that it can be adjusted from a choker to a long layering necklace, and anything in between! Like all my work, it is a completely unique piece, made entirely by hand using recycled silver, environmentally-friendly methods and cruelty-free materials!
