Turquoise Crystal Cluster Necklace
This unique necklace was handmade using the lost wax casting process. Molds of quartz crystals were taken, cast in brass, and set with a beautiful turquoise stone. Handmade in Chicago, each piece is unique and one-of-a-kind. Hangs from a 28" brass chain.
All brass used is nickel free.
