African Turquoise Necklace
Handmade African Turquoise Necklace with Standing Buddha Leela Pendant from Thailand: 8mm African turquoise beads hand knotted with a Standing Buddha Leela Pendant from Thailand. Length: 22″ Pendant length: 1.5″.
Hand knotting is a very time consuming process but the end result is unmatched. Intentionally placed knots are secured by hand for longevity and aesthetics. The high-quality gemstones provide a substantial weight and beautiful drape that looks and feels luxurious. A gun metal colored pewter toggle clasp finishes off this beautiful necklace.
Although African Turquoise is called Turquoise, it is actually a form of jasper that is mined in Africa. The matrix of the stone with its beautiful black and brown webs and spots is what truly makes the stone a beautiful substitute for the more expensive traditional turquoise for handmade jewelry.
