Amber and Turquoise

Another custom piece. I was given a plain amber necklace and 3 large chunks of turquoise to work with. The customer wanted a choker. I doubled the amber to match the scale of the turquoise. I made links and a clasp to finish the necklace out of fine silver. I am just learning how craft these and used a small dremel tool with buffers and polishes to add a nice finish to the findings. With the leftovers I created a bracelet and two pairs of earrings.
