I created this original necklace from a piece of sheet metal that I pierced, sawed, filed, and textured with a swirl pattern. Set within the center is a beautiful aqua blue Morenci Turquoise gemstone with pretty pyrite inclusions surrounded by swirls. The pendant hangs from a thick rolo chain that is adjustable in length. The necklace has been oxidized to appear a dhttps://www.melaniegolden.com/products/aqua-blue-morenci-turquoise-gemstone-necklace-in-sterling-silver-with-swirly-border-teal-blue-bohemian-boho-southwestern-pendant-necklaceark gray color and polished to bring out the highlights.
Turquoise is a soft, opaque gemstone. Its sky blue color comes from the presence of copper; green tones are provided by iron traces. Turquoise sometimes has a rock matrix and varying shades of gray, brown or black veining due to inclusions or oxide stains.
Chain Style: Round Rolo Chain. This necklace features a Round Rolo Chain. The links that make up Rolo Chain are created from semi-round wire so that each link is wider than the wire thickness. This style of chain is heavy duty and can stand up to a lot of wear and tear, while still retaining a delicate and minimal look.
