This beautiful necklace is 18 inches long from end to end and each of the 3 tube beads are 3/4 inch in length. The necklace is strung with hand cut graduated natural turquoise heishi beads. The necklace terminates into sterling beads and sterling cones and clasp is hand made hook and eye. This necklace could be extended if needed by attaching a chain to the eye portion of the clasp.
The turquoise heishi has lots of natural black matrix and each bead is a little bit different in width signifying hand made. Hand made is never perfect. It's in wonderful vintage condition with some tarnish on the silver and all are strung on a type of cord that looks like sinew.
