A gorgeous large (34x16mm) Royston ribbon turquoise polished cabochon features a vivid blue stripe down the center of its marbled prairie beige matrix background. A pair of raised, three-dimensional horses in motion gallop among the stars. A fringe of turquoise nuggets accented with striped agate beads give added movement. The organically twisted vine bail is accented with a 4mm polished blue turquoise cabochon, and is roomy enough to switch the leather cord out for your own chain. The pendant is suspended on a 6mm distressed saddle brown leather cord capped with sterling silver hardware and lobster clasp, two inch extension chain attached.
The horses are repurposed, they had been a vintage sterling silver brooch originally that I had found in a bin destined to be melted down at the refinery.
Measurements: Pendant is 1-1/2″ wide by 3-3/4″ long including bail. Leather cord is 16″ long, up to 18″ with 2″ extension chain.

Meant for those who wish to communicate. Beneficial for the entire body.
Agate: To balance the spirit and emotions, inspire courage, bring peace and promote longevity. In ancient times, agate was highly valued as a talisman or an amulet, said to miraculously quench the thirst of its owner and to protect him from fever. Agate was also said to add an element of stability to its owner’s life, cure insomnia, facilitate greater discretion, and bring its wearer strength and victory in battle. Accepts circumstances, discerns the truth, powerful emotional healer.
