Spectacular Turquoise Necklace with Ornate Silver Longhorn Pendant and Matching Earrings

The focal of this spectacular turquoise necklace is a Texas Longhorn skull pendant of carved bone, horn, and finely detailed silver embellished with a turquoise cabochon. The pendant design features bone carved in the shape of a Longhorn skull in the Georgia O'Keeffe style. The bone is partially wrapped in textured silver embellished with a design of whorls and trios of tiny beads, and a genuine turquoise cabochon with a lovely matrix is centered on the skull. The horns of the skull are created from two pieces of carved horn which are banded in decorative silver and capped with silver tips. The pendant bail is embellished with a swirl pattern.

The necklace itself demonstrates the beauty of simplicity and provides balance for the pendant. I chose genuine turquoise rondelles of a very nice quality and a lovely color for the basis of the necklace. The turquoise rondelles are separated by small hematite heishi beads which echo the black hue of the horns. Tiny sterling silver beads provide the seat for the pendant bail, and trios of tiny beads lead to the sterling silver hook closure to complete the design.

The earrings feature turquoise rondelles framed between sterling silver beads and hematite rondelles. The turquoise beads are suspended from flat hammered marquise earwires, and the earrings measure 1 ¼ inches from the piercing. The necklace measures 18 inches in length, and the pendant measures 2 ½ by 2 ¼ inches including the bail. The silver components are 925 silver. Turquoise has traditionally been considered a truth stone and is also believed to improve mental clarity. Whether your interest is the beauty of turquoise, cowgirl jewelry, Texas Longhorn themes, or Western motif jewelry, you cannot beat this unique and wonderful necklace and matching earrings.

Please Note: The necklaces I create are one of a kind designs. The stones I used to create this necklace are genuine and natural and as such there may be anomalies in shape, size, and color.
