• Image of Turquoise Sands Fine Silver Pendant

Reminiscent of a turquoise sea.

Turquoise is a semi-precious mineral composed of hydrated copper and aluminum phosphate. It’s name comes from the Turkish traders who brought it from Persia to Europe, hence the French “turquois”. Water flowing over rock released minerals that flowed into crevices and formed veins and nuggets of turquoise. Other minerals are often present, in fact the composition varies with location. Turquoise is often formed as veins in a host rock.

Silver Art Clay is made from silver reclaimed from photography and X-ray film, combined with an organic binder. It can be formed just like clay: rolled, stamped, coiled, joined, and is then dried. Then it is fired by kiln or flame and the organics burn out, leaving either fine or sterling silver depending upon the formula. It is versatile and fun to work!
