Turquoise is a stone of protection, a symbol of wisdom and nobility. Traveling through the US Southwest in the 1980s, I was taken by the magnificent contrast of bare brown earth against the blue azure of the sky, of the naturally carved forms of the hills and mountains. I combined the protective meaning of Turquoise with the natural earth forms of the Southwest into this necklace.
This is a one-of-a-kind piece due to the nature of the materials. We welcome special orders based on this design.
