Turquoise Sterling Silver Wrapped Pendant Necklace
Tibetans have always placed a high value on the power of stone beads, and Tibetan turquoise is one of the top prized stones. Local to the Himalayas, this turquoise is viewed by the Tibetans as a symbol for the sky. Traditionally, the larger the bead the more power it possessed, so Tibetan women spend their lifetimes trading up to a larger and more wonderfully colored and patterned stone beads for their personal necklaces. The first jewelry given to Tibetan children is always turquoise, which is believed to keep people from falling.
I wrapped this beautiful Turquoise cabochon as simply as possible with sterling silver 12mm wire using cold forming techniques to keep the highlight on the beautiful freeform stone. The pendant measures approximately 43x22mm (2" from top of bail) and comes complete with an 18'' Black Silicone Rubber 2mm Tubing Cord Necklace with Locking Clasp.
Every piece of jewelry is crafted with a very close attention to detail and is completely hand made. Each item will have its own character which is what makes them unique.
Jewelry arrives in the gift box, ready for gift-giving.

Spiritually, Turquoise heals and cleanses both the energy centers and the physical body. It acts to induce wisdom and understanding, and to enhance trust, kindness, and the recognition of beauty. What we wish for ourselves -- happiness, love, freedom of limitation and fear -- when extended to others by letting go of our insistence of “justice” and viewing others through compassion and forgiveness, we receive those gifts back through our own heart.
Turquoise enhances the ability to see all aspects of ourselves, good and bad, and to integrate these aspects into a cohesive whole. While it is tempting to try and rid ourselves of the traits of self that are not entirely enlightened, Turquoise, like an ancient Grandfather ally, reminds us that all experiences are valid and that mistakes are simply another experience. Wholeness can only come when we are willing to embrace all of who we are and what we have learned.
