Amazing Carico Lake turquoise necklace, hand fabricated from sterling silver sheet and wire. The bezel setting was hand fitted and soldered to the unique shape of the turquoise cabochon. Next, the setting was soldered onto a sterling silver sheet. The backplate was cut using a fine jeweler's hand saw, leaving a border. A fancy edging technique has been added to create a shimmery effect. The bezel setting has been sawed into sections to create a castellated bezel setting. The back is stamped .925 and ASB (maker's initials) to certify metal purity. On an 18" chain.
