+About Sonoran gold turquoise: Sonoran gold is an exquisite new (2019/20) turquoise from Sonora, Mexico that takes a hard shine. It is found in aqua blue, lime green and a mix of the two, with golden to brown matrix. Traditionally, turquoise is taken from veins, but Sonoran gold is found in individual nuggets embedded in clay deposits. It's a stunningly pretty stone.
+ All pieces are slowly and carefully handmade, in my studio in Sheridan, Wyoming. Because of this, each piece is unique and may contain the slight imperfections that you would expect with a handcrafted item. Perfectly imperfect!
+ As with all handmade jewelry, please be mindful to take care of it. It should not be worn in the shower, while cleaning, during strenuous activities such as sports, or in the water.
+ Sun, heat, lotions and chemicals can affect stones negatively. Clean silver (not stones) with a gentle polishing cloth, especially for jewelry (Sunshine polishing cloth is recommended and included with your purchase).
