Turquoise Heart Necklace


Handmade by master jewelry designer Greta Kessler, this one-of-a-kind necklace features a turquoise heart pendant, beads of turquoise, agate, glass and Sterling silver.  Notice the exquisite craftsmanship on the necklace including the Sterling silver clasp and the bead above the heart pendant featuring traditional silversmithing techniques which are very labor intensive.  Many techniques and patterns have been passed down from generation to generation, and new elements continue to be added as the modern silversmiths hone their skills. To create a piece, the artist applies granulation (silver dots) and wires in detailed patterns that are further enhanced by an oxidation process.  It is 22" long with a 3 1/2" drop for the turquoise heart pendant.
