This design is featured in my book 'Wire Jewellery Masterlass'
I have captured a beautiful piece of genuine Turquoise in a frame of swirling silver wire, reminiscent of the foaming sea waves over a coral reef. The swirls of wire, interspersed with silver beads, skim the edge of the stone, holding it securely in place.
Two sterling silver sea Turtles are swimming through the swirling waters!
The necklace is made with genuine turquoise chips and heshi beads, sterling silver Bali beads, handmade wire cones and a trigger clasp. The necklace is 18 1/2" long.
The pendant is 2 1/4" tall including the wrapped bail and 1 1/8" wide.
I have heavily oxidised this piece and hand polished it to a brilliant shine, to really highlight the detail.
This item comes in a jewellery box.
