"Rocky Mountain" Turquoise Pendant
Combining the intense blues and greens of turquoise with the earthy tones of birch bark, the Rocky Mountain Collection by Tessoro presents a contemporary Southwestern look. The blue turquoise used is from the now closed Sleeping Beauty mine, which has long been very desirable due to its exquisite blue color. Each piece makes use of the natural variations in materials and are truly one-of-a-kind.
Materials include: natural birch bark, sterling silver, turquoise
Black leather cord measures approximately 17"

About the artist:
Jewelry designer, Deborah Bushinski, designs Tessoro Jewelry to feature the natural beauty of birch bark. The bark used is salvaged from the northern Minnesota logging industry. The bark is then cut or torn and coated with an acrylic polymer to add to its durability. The copper is recycled from car radiators. Semi-precious stones, sterling beads, freshwater pearls, and turquoise nuggets are used sparingly to enhance the designs. In her studio in Minnetonka, Minnesota, Deb carefully chooses her materials and maintains the integrity and demanding level of fine craftsmanship you expect in each piece.
Hand-crafted in the U.S.A.
