Hubei Turquoise and Carnelian Necklace with Tibetan Bead Focal and Sterling Accents

in: Necklace



Hubei Turquoise and Carnelian Necklace with Tibetan Bead Focal and Sterling Accents- Genuine turquoise - not colored stones, not plastic, not howlite - from the Hubei Mine in China. Gorgeous, 6mm rounds of blue and green perfection! I do love my turquoise! For this necklace, I made a focal pendant with a handmade bead from Tibet, with turquoise, coral, and silver inlay - so beautiful! I added a small sterling silver feather charm to the bottom of the focal. This is not a chunky necklace, as the beads are not large.

I felt Carnelian was a perfect gemstone for this design -a s close in coral color as I could get, anyway.  Tiny, 4mm rounds of Carnelian, interspersed with sterling silver beads, completes the chain. The necklace fastens with a simple hook and eye closure, which I wrought from heavy gauge sterling silver.

Measurements: Overall length: 21 inches;  Total Focal Pendant Length: 2 3/4" long; Hubei Turquoise Round Beads: 6mm; Carnelian Beads, 4mm; Tibetan Bead Focal: 33mm long; Sterling Silver Feather Charm 19mm;

This is such a beautiful Statement Turquoise necklace to be enjoyed for years to come!
