Ths piece was reworked for the new owner
due to a couple of tiny nuggets being cracked...had to replace all with turquoise that was hardened by a clear stablization process...and exchanged the alabaster for TQ rounds. The pattern is the same basicly except for
addition of a few tiny coral beads near the focal and at the end of the teeth.
I did not take pics of the newly strung pattern. Maybe the new owner will send a pic once he gets it & approves the design.
This piece is currently made with white buffalo turquoise..the real thing...not howlite. Spacers are WB tq 6mm rounds and tiny Kingman blue TQ barrel beads and a few tiny red coral beads at beginning and end of the teeth.
Endings and clasp are traditional silver....strung on heavy gauge jewelry
