This one-of-a-kind necklace is made from tortoise turquoise*, a rare and captivating stone from central Nevada. In the lower portion of the strand, I've used tortoise teardrops (or "puppy dog's ears") and primitive African copper bicones to frame a vintage brass pendant featuring a whimsical rock art type mushroom overlaid on a copper circle. The strand's upper portion alternates unusual nunderite** rounds and African copper bicones; the hook-and-eye clasp is handmade copper.

The necklace's name is "Amanita," and it measures 18". (The pendant is about an inch high and wide.)

*According to turquoise-museum.com, "tortoise turquoise is mint green to emerald green, blue/green, white, brown, and red in color. It runs in a black shale, natural berlated cement and a goldish brown jasper rock. There are small to giant nuggets/nodules as well as wide and thin vein material that is encrusted by this black and tan host rock. The host rock, being a shale type material, naturally developed veined outsets and pockets of chalcociderite, turquoise and variscite."

**Nunderite, which hails from Nundle, New South Wales (Australia), is composed of andalusite, green epidote, and quartz. It is said to be a good stone to wear while traveling.
