Sterling Silver & Kingman Turquoise Petit Point Necklace

By Jesse Johnson

This offering is sold.
Jesse Johnson's fabulous sterling silver and luscious Kingman turquoise petit point necklace is truly mouth watering. This collectible necklace is all hand-fabricated in the traditional Zuni petit point way. Each Kingman turquoise stone is hand-cut to fit into a custom cut sterling silver bezel, a laborious and time consuming way of making jewelry only known to the Zunis. Each center Kingman turquoise cabochon is slightly raised and gorgeous. Jesse added a hand-stamped raincloud element as well. The sterling silver chain is so beautiful too. Overall necklace length is about 19", while the top medallion measures about 1 7/8" in diameter and the bottom medallion is about 1 1/4" in diameter. Medallion stations hang at about 5".
