CADEAUX du MONDE

Turquoise Pendant Necklace

Greta Kessler

Handmade by master jewelry designer Greta Kessler, this one-of-a-kind necklace features a Sterling silver wire wrapped turquoise pendant, glass pearls, beads of turquoise, marcasite, crystal and Sterling silver highlighted by a Sterling double leaf clasp.  Notice the exquisite craftsmanship on the necklace including the Sterling silver clasp 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 20 1/2" long with a 3" drop for the turquoise pendant.
