If you like turquoise, this is a simple, wow necklace. Two strands of very good quality turquoise, in slices of varying shapes.

One strand has much large pieces, approximately 25 mm x 32 mm x 5.22 mm deep.

The second strand is made up of small turquoise slices, (13.5 mm x 13.3 x 4.7 mm deep).

At the back of the necklace, to ensure the necklace lies well, there are 3mm turquoise beads.

Interspersed throughout the necklace are handmade, vintage, traditional beads from Afghanistan (7.5 mm). They are 18 ct gold, on silver, on hardened resin.
I have been using these Afghanistan crafted gold beads for a very long time because I love the yellow gold and the charming craftsmanship their work achieves. It suits the designs and stone I use. But they are now rare beads and more costly than ever, if found. The Afghani have been crafting gold for centuries. When Alexander the Great came to Afghanistan in 330 BC, his people brought many skills, one of which was working in gold. Like the Romans, centuries later, a yellow, 18 ct gold was used. But one of their techniques was to take sheet gold and work it onto hardened resin and then decorate it accordingly. These etched and gadrooned beads are their creations.

Gold filled on silver toggle clasp are used. Toggle clasps are easy to use and secure. My silver name label is attached at the clasp.

The necklace comes, like all my necklaces, with it's own colour co-ordinated silk brocaded pouch bag, made by a Shanghai tailor.

The necklace is 16 inches long.
