New Mexico and Turquoise Pendant | NM TRUE Turquoise Necklace
A dainty 3/8" New Mexico pendant has been set with a tiny turquoise chip and attached to a 18" matching chain.
These stones are a mix from Tyrone Mine in Southern New Mexico, and vintage stock KIngman Turquoise from Arizona.
We offer three metal options on this pendant: copper (with copper chain), silver-plate (with sterling silver chain), and gold-plate (gold-filled chain).
Electroforming is the process of building up copper deposits on any object. The process can be very slow and it almost has a mind of its own. Sometimes there are striations in the copper, sometimes pits, sometimes there are little copper spheres. The results are always beautiful and unexpected making each piece entirely unique. Each piece had been cleaned up by hand and finished in the tumbler. The copper is absolutely raw... no added chemicals or sealants.
To maintain the finish as long as possible, avoid prolonged exposure to water as well as harsh chemicals. The copper will oxidize and darken over time giving it a warm deep finish. This is natural and every oxidation is unique to the person who wears it and the environment in which they live. The copper grows with you. You can bring back the original sheen by gently rubbing it with a soft polish cloth. Greening may happen. It doesn't happen to everyone. I leave the metals raw to avoid causing any reactions to additional chemicals. Silver-plate is slow to tarnish and gold-plate will not tarnish.
