American Turquoise Pendants

These pendants are not for the faint of heart. These are for the adventurous, the bold and the unafraid. But all joking aside, how great are these?! Hand carved from solid American turquoise and accented with antique "white heart" glass beads, these pendants demand attention. Like many of our unique pieces, this is a very limited item and what you see in the picture below is all we have.

Don't fear their size. With turquoise of this quality, bigger is always better.

Apaitite (blue/green)- $12
Dyed Quartz (bright blue)- $5
Blue Lace Agate (light blue)- $8
