Miller Turquoise Gemstone on Copper + Fine Silver Pendant

Miller Turquoise Gemstone on Copper + Fine Silver Pendant


Amazing Miller turquoise on a simple copper neck ring … I just love this combination of green turquoise with copper. This handcrafted Miller turquoise on copper neck ring matches perfectly with the Miller Turquoise Copper Cuff Bracelet.

Turquoise is an opaque, blue-to-green mineral that is a hydrated phosphate of copper and aluminium. It is rare and valuable in finer grades and has been prized as a gemstone and ornamental stone for thousands of years owing to its unique hue. This beautiful piece of green turquoise was hand-mined from Miller Mountain which is located south of the Candellaria Hills in Nevada. Miller Turquoise is a recent find (2015) and I was able to purchase this and one other piece from the actual mine owners.

This multi-metal pendant was designed with copper, argentium silver and sterling silver. In designing this miller turquoise pendant, the 18ga copper backplate was given a hammered texture, and the fine silver bezel that surrounds this gorgeous turquoise gemstone has been fused with recycled fine silver dust creating a very unique, rustic texture. Additionally, this amazing pendant hangs from a hand forged neck ring of 12 gauge copper which was fused with argentium silver balls for detail. Finally, the copper pendant and the neck ring were given a patina bath and finished with a light coat of wax to help protect the patina.

When wearing this amazing piece of art, please avoid moisturizers and or perfume on the area of your neck where your necklace will be worn, as it may react with the copper and leave dark marks on your neck.  Also, some people have skin reactions to copper and it could leave dark marks on their skin.  Either way, the dark marks can be washed off easily with a little soap and water.

This handcrafted Miller turquoise copper pendant is 2" in length, including the bail and 1.25" at its widest point.  The copper neck ring is 17” in length. If you need a larger neck ring, please contact me with your request.

Wearing copper can relieve joint stiffness and joint pain.  Copper is also a very grounding metal and it has the ability to transfer vibrational frequencies from the higher vibrational realms of spirit into the physical. Copper will help you to keep the pathways for healing open in your life.

Each piece of my handcrafted metal jewelry designs are stamped with my logo and my signature.
