NEW! A touch of the Southwest but not too much! I am pleased to offer an elegant new necklace featuring three long dangles that fall gracefully from a simple sterling and turquoise necklace. The beautiful focal charm is a turquoise heart pendant by D. Dodson, a well known designer from Santa Fe. The center turquoise heart is surrounded by little lighter colored turquoise stones which really make the center heart stand out. There are two other pendant freeform turquoise slabs in the same bright and pretty shade as the little stones in the focal pendant. All three pendants are decorated with various colorful beads, some old trade bead, some old silver beads, a bit of copper, and fall about 4″ from the body of the necklace, which has 2 large sterling central beads flanked you stacks of thin turquoise stones, and finished with long sterling spacers and sterling chain. This necklace is 18″ and with the 4″ of the pendants it makes a very graceful and easy to wear treasure!
The Design Gallery comes to you full of old and new wonders meeting in all sorts of renewed patterns and shapes. There is history here as well as contemporary creativity. Ancient, vintage or present, all these handmade and natural items, many of them found on a beach, in my vintage collection or in an artist's studio, all come together in this Gallery. The provenance of many of these items have long since vanished into the past. They are often repurposed into other designs, and all are waiting to be refound by my customer friends who enjoy these wonders as much as I enjoy bringing them together into unique one of a kind treasures.
Necklaces seem to make a statement. We wear them to identify ourselves, to display how we feel, who we are, and we have so many choices! Just enjoy!
