The artist used turquoise nuggets, giving the piece an earthy organic beauty. The necklace was made in the 70's so the turquoise is at least that old, if not earlier, when the mine was producing very high grade material. Each nugget has an even rich shade of robin's egg blue, with and excellent polish.They average 8 mm in length and 5mm in width and all of them are perfectly matched for size, shape and color, giving the necklace a beautiful harmony. The rich brown fiber cording that the beads were strung on blends perfectly with the olive shell heishi and gives the necklace an extremely fluid feel and drape when worn. The fiber is currently knotted for a 34 inch length (or 17 inch drop) that just slips over the head. This is a rare necklace of beauty and quality that was meant to be worn and enjoyed for a lifetime. It's versatile and stunning with virtually anything in your closet....
