I didn't know how much I would appreciate this necklace until it was finished and I attached the clasp to put it on for the first time. It's length, it's weight, and the variety of turquoise that makes up this piece just makes it so right. It's simple. There is strength in its subtlety. I looked at this necklace in the mirror and acknowledged each little nugget with my fingertips, and whispered to myself... I love this one.
Featured turquoise stones: Campitos (upper freeform, Sonora). Sky Song (triangular lower, Baja). Kingman nuggets (Arizona)
This necklace is hand-built with reclaimed sterling silver. The pendant body is simple to follow the curves of the two complimentary turquoise stones. The rolo chain is fixed and Kingman turquoise nuggets have been secured into the chain.
Brushed texture with a steel wool finish for a little bit of shine. Medium, waxed patina for contrast. My Maker's Mark and purity are on the reverse along with a little, double-layered Tall Pines emblem. A shepherds hook clasp finishes off the chain.
Measurements: 1-1/4" top to bottom. 1-3/4" across the widest point of the pendant body. This necklace allows for an appealing drop to 24".

The Jewelry of Broken Pine: The items I make are one-of-a-kind pieces of reclaimed precious metals. There are no templates or molds used in any part of my fabrication process. There are inconsistencies and natural character that will make every piece of jewelry truly unique for you, and should be appreciated and expected. I forge, hammer, saw, solder, tweak, twist, stamp, texture and polish everything by hand. Please be sure of your jewelry preferences and sizes before purchasing. Measurements and sizes are very detailed. Please refer to the Policy & Resources section for the finer details. Your purchase constitutes agreement of my shop policies.
*Reclaimed metals: all the precious metals used have already served a purpose in a previous life, and that metal has been purely recaptured to be used again to create new. No metal has been freshly mined to create your jewelry.
