Beautiful turquoise magnasite necklace and pendant. Magnasite is a natural stone that has been valued by many Native Americans for hundreds of years. The Pomo people in California used the mineral in jewelry and as money. Most money beads were traded by the strand, but not magnesite. Since magnesite was considered very valuable, the crafted beads were traded individually.
This necklace uses a combination of rectangular stones interspersed with nuggets and silver-plated beads, sporting a teardrop pendant. The pendant is approximately 2 inches long and one inch wide. The necklace hangs to mid chest.
Welcome to Romance and Rhinestones. I have been handcrafting jewelry for over ten years and love creating one of a kind items for you to enjoy. I don't limit myself to one style, but rather follow the inspiration I feel when I see the wonderful colors and textures of the materials. Sometimes dainty and delicate, sometimes bold and chunky, sometimes even a little funky. Happy shopping!
