Sleeping Beauty turquoise necklace by Janie Chavez
This majestic necklace includes six magnificent polished stones of Sleeping Beauty turquoise set in sterling silver. This one of a kind necklace is lovingly handmade by Janie Chavez of the Kewa Pueblo tribe in northern New Mexico, USA. The necklace has a sterling silver chain fastening for adjustable length.
Sleeping Beauty turquoise is known for its purity and stability of colour. The Sleeping Beauty mine is now closed and so this beautiful stone is becoming more sought after and is rapidly increasing in value.
The Chavez family have been making jewellery for Rainmaker Gallery for over twenty five years. We are honoured to bring you the beautiful work of this talented family.
