The colors in this necklace are so vibrant and cheerful. This basic Blue Diamond Turquoise and Spiny Oyster bead necklace features beautiful bright blue and shocking orange heishi beads. These beads are really neat due to the unique half barrel cut and the great color of the beads. A lot of the cheaper Spiny Oyster shell beads are full of holes and are a pale color because they were cut out of the shell wrong. These are top grade orange Spiny Oyster Shell beads. The blue American Turquoise used for these heishi beads came from the Blue Diamond mine in Nevada, USA. These wonderful beads are strung on Bead-a-lon brand Teflon coated steel cable and are finished of with sterling silver round beads and a sterling silver lobster claw.
We cherish this Turquoise because of the cut and the color. We bought a stash of it these fine beads a few years ago and we use it intermittently since it gets harder every year to find REAL Turquoise beads every year, especially American Turquoise beads.
When Nattarika was making this necklace, she thought she'd go for a more traditional Southwest look, which in this case, is simple and can either be formal or informal.
This Turquoise and Spiny Oyster Shell bead necklace was artisan handmade in Durango, Colorado USA.
The necklace is 18 inches long and weighs 28 grams.
