Make a bold statement with this truly unique lapis lazuli necklace. The design started with finding the large lapis slab with brass and turquoise inlaid on the edges. The look came together with two,turquoise carved pieces, 2 large irregular lapis beads, shiny round lapis and gold hematite. The clasp is a handmade in the USA vermeil, (gold on sterling silver) wire wrapped s-hook.
Lapis has been prized for its intense color for many centuries.
The necklace is almost 30 inches long. The focal lapis piece is, at its largest points, almost 3 1/2 inches wide by about 2 1/4 inches high.
