Lacy Medallion Necklace in Turquoise and Sterling Silver
This piece began with a sketch and a beautiful cut of natural turquoise. The stone speaks in warm mustard and sage with highlights of warm aqua near the deep off-black veining. The antiqued silver, hand forged links, and unique style of this necklace complete its artisan charm.
I printed a lace pattern on silver for the backing and framed the medallion in with a textured raised border. A playful tassel dangles from a big rivet adding a touch of importance and flare to the necklace. Within the chain, there are two tiny square turquoise stones set deeply into silver cups, they bring balance to the larger focal stone.
Made with the intention of antiquity, this necklace is full of hand fabricated details-the bezels, the tassel, the clasp, and each link are all handmade from scratch.
Each and every link has been soldered closed creating a very sturdy necklace.
Necklace measures 21". Pendant measures about 1 1/2" wide and 2 1/2" long. The tassel is an additional 2 1/4" long. From the top of the pendant to the bottom of the tassel measures 4 3/4". Large turquoise stone measures 1 1/4" by 1". The small turquoise stones are 1/8" by 1/8".
All metal is solid sterling silver and darkened for an antique look, and then polished to a satin finish.
This is a unique necklace, made by my hands in my studio, with love. Made to last.
