Craftsperson: Shop Assembly by Native Americans of Manufactured Components - Arizona, USA 

Description: This turquoise is  stabilized and compressed. Graduated Green/Blue Turquoise overlapping puffy discs and Sterling accents with a toggle closure. This necklace can be worn on either side and looks different on both sides.

This piece was assembled in a shop that employs Native Americans (usually Navajo) to fabricate their line of jewelry. The line is widely carried by purveyors of Native American goods, gift shops, catalogs, and museum stores. I had requests from people who wanted certain kinds "Native American" work but couldn't afford it. This was my compromise. The shop employs Native Americans and uses silver in the findings. The pieces are attractive and price-accessible.  

This work should never be confused with the bulk of what I carry. I would characterize this as good quality costume jewelry.

There are a lot of places that misrepresent this line by ignorance, outright lie, or sin of omission, leaving the customer with the impression they are getting handmade pieces. A comparable handmade piece would likely be priced at five to ten times the cost of this. The disc beads pieces from this shop are never signed by an individual.

I try to make my descriptions accurate, if you have any questions, please ask.

The beads can have an ocher/brown matrix. It comes in many hues ranging from bright green to ocean green to forest green and even blue-green. Please allow for variations of colors and veining in these beads. The piece is handcrafted with Sterling silver accent beads and findings
