Absolutely natural, carved by hand, organic. Turquoise nugget beads necklace, 33! Each bead is different in its color, and its carving. This is not the lower quality, maybe fake Turquoise that.If the color is uniform and even. That is a very good sign that the Turquoise maybe.
The nugget beads hang from a vintage sterling silver chain. In center there is a Chinese silver ball showing 2 heads of dragons all wrapped up with a snake-so dramatic. Look at my close-ups, so special. Enjoy the pictures that show you how different each bead is.
Make me a fair offer and start your own collection-museum quality. There are little Onyx beads between nugget beads.After 35 years of designing jewelry for museums and collecting beads. I take the liberty of redesigning old pieces, using ancient and vintage. Beads in the Chinese styles of design. Where I feel that certain modern components will enhance, enrich and strengthen. The necklace, I go ahead and do it. I will not claim that a necklace is pre-owned when it's not. Most old and ancient necklaces are so fragile and loose, that. One cannot wear them without risking breakage, not to mention that they don't look. Pictures are part of the description. I have been designing jewelry for almost 30 years. Pricing Philosophy: As a designer myself, I like to have a consistent idea of what things cost and may cost in the future. In that spirit, I set the fairest price I can. A while ago, I bought out the remaining inventory of an old Chinese merchant I know for many years.
I have been designing for the most estimable museums and catalogs for many years. Among them are The Smithsonian, The Met, Sundance catalog and many many more. Now you can find many of the samples used for these companies, right here in my store, for a fraction of their retail prices.
