I embroidered the “Turquoise Heart” necklace using turquoise from USA including chips from the Sleeping Beauty mine in Arizona which has been closed for a few years.
I used the Shibori silk on which I embroidered Japanese Mijuki beads and sleeping beauty turquoise chips. The large piece of turquoise is surrounded be soutache, which also adds to the embellishment of the piece.
The chain is made with pink Miyuki bead and Turquoise rounds with a sterling silver magnetic clasp finish for easy break and withdrawal.
The back of the piece is lined with ultra-suede for a nice finish.
As this necklace is made with genuine gemstones by hand it cannot be reproduced exactly.
The piece will come boxed with authenticity certificates for each type of gemstone used.
