The pendant measures 2 and 1/8th inches in length and is 3/8th of an inch across the widest section of the carved stone. It weighs 15 grams which is ideal for the person who desires an elegant and lightweight piece. Each bead is hand cut, drilled, strung and shaped into a graduated strand before being polished. It requires a lot of skill and the result is a strand of beads that has an even and smooth finish. A lot of the turquoise is lost and broken in this process, which is time consuming and requires patience as well as skill.
The turquoise drop was capped with a double layer of sterling cones, creating a tiered appearance. The cones are divided by a straight edged sterling wire and the base cone is covered in a stamped rain cloud pattern. It's finished with a small round silver bead and beautifully wire wrapped.Two accent silver beads flank the pendant and finish the design. If you admire perfection and elegance, then this necklace will appeal to your sense of beauty. Great worn alone or stacked with other turquoise beads.
