Green Turquoise Swirl

About this design:

I like necklaces with drops, I don't know what they are really called. I've also been on a turquoise kick! It's supposedly really in this year, which is great, but I just love all the variations.


Turquoise beads, LB silver chain, silver beads caps, silver "S" hook clasp, and Hill Tribe silver beads and pendant.

    Fave! I like necklaces with dangles too. This one looks nice and long!

    Do you mind telling us how long it is so we can put it perspective with the size of the turquoise? Thanks! SLS

    Thanks everyone! Shannon, the chain is 18″ long with a 2″ extender chain in the back.

    Frida, the turquoise beads were only labelled as turquoise so I’m not sure where they came from. The picture appears more blue, but they’re really a green turquoise.

    Wow, you gave me a great idea. I never thought to add the pendant along with the drops of the turquoise. This is a fabulous look. Love it – how can you not fall in love with this piece?

    Cool, thanks Brenda. The lightswitch in the back should have been my first clue of the size but I first saw it on my blackberry.

    This is such a fun way to utilize large turquoise beads and get a lot of ‘pop’. FAVE! SLS
