These beads were purchased in New Mexico over 12 years ago. This is a great necklace for work or a night on the town, or a Saturday at the Farmer's Market.
- Made with large turquoise nuggets that range in size from 20mm x 17mm to 23mm x 13mm. The turquoise nuggets are not dyed and show various shades of green, brown and turquoise.
- The larger sterling silver beads measure around 8mm x 10mm. The size of the beads add to the rustic and authentic appearance.
- Smaller turquoise nuggets at the top of the necklace (closer to the sterling silver lobster clasp) are separated by 4mm sterling silver nuggets.
- The beading wire is sturdy and the lobster clasp measures 10mm and is substantial enough to hold the stones for years to come.
