Beautiful vintage Santo Domingo turquoise necklace! The artist uses turquoise from the same mine and cuts graduating heishi beads, triangular slabs, four sided slabs, and round oval slabs to make the necklace. The artist mixes up the cut slabs and applies them into five (5) sections to create a balanced necklace with the heishi used as spacers and dividers. The artist uses a total of eight small hand rolled sterling silver melon beads and finishes with handmade hook-n-eye shepherds clasp. All strung on a cotton twine. All of the turquoise beads are cut to appear as they were connect as a whole piece. No gaps or unevenness. 

The beautiful necklace measures 20 1/4" long end to end with a wearable length of 10" from clasp to bottom of focal turquoise slab. It weighs 52.8 grams (1.86 ounces) and is unsigned with sterling silver melon beads and clasp. Very nice necklace with beautiful quality turquoise!  $229.95
