Turquoise Triple


About this design:

I wanted something really full of turquoise, and I actually went too far. It has a gorgeous bali sterling clasp, but the weight of the stones is just too much -- so it'll have to just be a show piece, or I'll need to take it apart and rethink the design.

Components:

Turquoise, sterling.

    Love this! turquoise and silver is a fav! Maybe do a two strand and the 3rd strand a single to be worn with or with out.? What ever you do I’m sure it will be gorgeous!

    Oh Turquoise, my love! :-)
    You did an amazing job with this turquoise and silver necklace LAshe. Sometimes it’s hard to get heishi to lay correctly, especially where the the piece curves. This looks great!

    So sorry it’s heavy. What size heishi beads are these? It would be a shame to not to show this beauty off! So I like Beth’s suggestion of making it into two necklaces. :-D

    I love this turquoise necklace… instead of reducing the strands have you thought about using a heavier clasp? or if its just plain to heavy to wear, maybe wire wrap some of the beads and that would lighten it up, not to mention saving some of your lovely turquoise. just a sugestion. :)
