Turquoise, vesuvianite, and lapis mala
I hand selected 304 carats of gorgeous blue green Fox Mine turquoise, six Baroque freshwater pearls, and 23 pieces of faceted milky olive green vesuvianite, and wrapped each one by hand with recycled sterling silver wire. The resulting ‘chain’ is a beautiful symphony of color.
A handcrafted one of a kind talisman.
Turquoise is sacred to American Indians and worn for protection. It’s thought to enhance wisdom, kindness and inner harmony. I spent time each summer in New Mexico as a child and remember being mesmerized by the beautiful color of turquoise against the backdrop of sand and adobe. These stones are magical. The color- joyful.
I added a 3 carat peachy orange opal from Ethiopia and a large green tourmaline stick, also 3 carats. Both stones are wrapped in solid 14k yellow gold wire. Intentional color, so much extra beauty!
A faceted piece of lapis lazuli is the head bead of your mala. The quality is apparent in this incredibly special gemstone. The unheated silver Madagascar sapphire 'fringe' completes the piece. Perfection.
Enjoy wearing your piece as a single or double strand necklace, or wrapping it around your wrist as a bracelet. So much fun.
You will receive the exact necklace shown, as this piece is one of a kind.
