Turquoise and Ammonite Statement Necklace in Oxidized Silver, n20
This unique, big, and bold, one-of-a-kind turquoise and ammonite pendant in oxidized sterling makes a statement.
The turquoise is Hubei and has lovely blue and blue/green color, gorgeous black-webbing, and excellent polish. I've textured the bail to mimic naturally occurring patterns in the sweet little white and black ammonite. I've bezel set the ammonite atop two layers of 18 gauge silver, and the bail is also 18g silver.
It hangs from a heavy sterling chain adjustable in length to 30 inches. All metal on this piece is heavily oxidized sterling silver.
The pendant measures 8 cm tall and 5 cm wide (3 inches by 2 inches - including the bail). The ammonite swings freely and has the same texture on the back as seen on bail. The links in the chain are round and measure 4.85mm in diameter measured from the outside. The turquoise is slightly over 9mm a the thickest point.
Handmade, one of a kind.
