When the Sleeping Beauty turquoise mine closed in Arizona, I acquired these beads. They are some of the last available pieces from that source. I bought them for their magnificent color and the sheer mass of pieces, a love letter to the icon of American Turquoise. The varying size of cabochon balls cascade around your neck. The design follows this idea. It reflects the abundance, the grandeur, the history, culture and unpretentious beauty of the magnificent American West.
The piece is made up of three necklaces. It is meant to be layered, worn long or short, two strands or three; the gold clasps visible or at the back. Wear it with bright colors like yellow and green and burgundy; wear it with white cotton, jeans or a ball gown.
