This is a necklace of natural turquoise and natural Italian red branch coral. Exquisite! The focal beads on this necklace are large (ranging from about 1/2 inch to 3/4 inch). The matrix in the stones inspired Shannon to create this piece; the turquoise reminds us both of New Mexico sky, which is one of our true loves.
