Carico Lake Turquoise and Sterling Silver Pendant


Title: Prickly Pear #7

Description & Dimensions

This prickly pear cactus skeleton pendant was inspired by what lives inside the paddles of the prickly pear cactus. Each skeleton is unique, like a fingerprint. This skeleton was foraged in Sedona, prepared, and cast in sterling silver. This prong set Carico Lake turquoise gemstone (from the mine in Nevada) was chosen specifically to accentuate the shape of the finished piece. The bail simulates lizard scales. This pendant comes with an 18″ rose gold plated wheat chain. This turquoise and sterling silver pendant measures 2 inches long by 1 inch wide.

Prickly Pear #7 is handmade and one-of-a-kind.

Note: This pendant is no longer in stock, but I can make a custom similar one. The gemstone can be selected from any of the turquoise mines I have in my current inventory. I will provide you with choices. I use mostly southwest turquoise but also have stock of Kazakhstan (Lavender Hills) turquoise and some Mexican (Sonora Gold) turquoise.
