Turquoise Nugget Necklace.

Sorry, this necklace is no longer available. We may, however, still have a similar one if you want it.

This gentle necklace combines flat pebbles of Green shades of Turquoise alternating with smaller Aqua Turquoise discs as spacers. These spacers have been used to open the design and lighten it in the Navajo style. Each organically rounded flat pebble was drilled into the flat surface rather than lengthwise which allows the stones to float when strung, especially when seperated by the smaller spacers which also add another tone of Turquoise to the mix of aqua and olivey greens. It was strung for us by a friend in Thailand with pure stones until the very back where there are a few small plain, sterling silver spacer beads and a shepherd's crook hook.

We've used durable multi stranded Tiger Tail to thread them, which is the strongest we can get, however DON'T stretch or scrunch it as you can irreparably kink it if you do.

The sterling silver beads and hook are fairly young and shiny, however when they do start to oxidize they will respond well to a gentle polishing (of each bead whilst holding the stones on either side firmly) with a dry "Silver Polishing Cloth" but don't bend or stretch it by rubbing too hard.

Although it appears heavy, as it's actually not as the design is spaced halving what appears to be a weight.
