Native American Necklace, 925 Sterling Silver pendant, Beaded Turquoise Jewelry
Unique Navajo handcrafted blue sleeping beauty turquoise with sterling silver bead necklace. This is a stunning hand crafted necklace made by Theresa Belone, that uses a hook and eye clasp. This necklace measures approximately 19" in total length and the largest bead is 10mm. This Turquoise was named "Sleeping Beauty" because of the Turquoise used in the original ring came from a beautiful mountain in Arizona, USA. The Sleeping Beauty Mine's history began with its storybook name "Sleeping Beauty". Some say the mountain from which the sky stone comes looks like a sleeping lady with her arms crossed. The mountain was named long before it was mined, but once the mine opened the Turquoise mined from the mountain adopted the iconic name.
