This necklace measures approximately 17 long. The turquoise heishe is slightly graduated the largest being approximately 3/16 across. The clasp pieces test for silver though not marked. The tag shows an LT on one side (probably stands for Louise Tafoya). The other side has some sort of hallmark.I don't know why the difference, perhaps bought at different times. This piece is in good gently used condition. Mary Louise Tafoya, is a Master of contemporary mosaic inlay jewelry of Santo Domingo, or Kewa Pueblo, in New Mexico.
