Big Turquoise Nugget Pendant
One summer I took the family gold panning in the foothills of northern California. While we didn’t exactly “strike it rich”, I did discover a treasure trove of gem resources in the little town where we stayed. I returned home with five tiny flakes of gold and a dozen wonderful gems purchased from local merchants and prospectors.
This pendant showcases one of these stones - a large stabilized turquoise nugget I bought from the Gem and Mineral Society of Mariposa. It is light blue-green, almost teal, with light brown to grey mottling. The turquoise stone has a satin finish. I have wrapped it gold-filled wire in a freeform pattern that accentuates the natural shape of the nugget.
