Additional Info:

Overall length is 19" including clasp. Double pendant is 2 9/16" x 9/16".
Circa 1970's.

Sterling silver, natural blue high grade turquoise stones in excellent condition. "J.T." artist/jeweler signature on back of two center dangling pendants. Tsosie fashioned heavy round wire to fabricate the hook and figure eight eye clasp. 58.7 grams

The stones in this necklace display unusual matrix that transitions from dark brown to smokey with a few small flecks of pyrite to a deep blue "water web". Extraordinary!

There are 8 hand-cut oval cabochons ranging in size from 3/4" x 1/2" and 11/16" to 1/2" at the center to 1/2" x 3/8" at the smallest.

The pendants are fabricated from sheet and heavy gauge square wire and 14 gauge round. The oval frames for each stone are sheet backed with a clean hand-cut smooth bezel 3/16" deep securing the turquoise. A decorative bale, made of drilled and hammer spread square wire is soldered to each oval setting, so that when strung between the necklace beads, each setting radiates to produce a collar of stunning blue.
