Turquoise Woodchip Pendant 2


A Great Combination of Color!



A woodchip pendant is a unique combination of a gemstone in a natural wood setting.  In this case, the gemstone is a lovely piece of turquoise from the Royston Turquoise mine in Nevada, which is known for the exceptional quality of the turquoise mined there.  Jake dug up this piece of turquoise at the Royston mine a few years go when the mine permitted the public to dig in the mine tailings, which they since have discontinued.  But Jake has a nice stash of this valuable turquoise left over and is able to cut a few new pieces from it each year.  The woodchip is sanded and stained by Jake and he cuts a depression into the wood to fit the stone, and coats the finished wood with a clear varnish.  The piece is topped by a copper bail.
