Tibetan Brass Inlaid Turquoise Focal Bead, Turquoise and Brass Necklace
This ethnic inspired necklace was envisioned when I laid my eyes on the beautiful 45.5mm Tibetan Brass Inlaid Turquoise Focal Bead. I complimented it with two 11 mm Drum Shaped Turquoise Inlaid Brass Nepal beads. It is also designed with stabilized Turquoise heishi beads, Brass Bali Style Filigree beads and Brass bead caps. All are hung on doubled Brass Rolo Chain. This 25" necklace is closed with a wonderful decorative brass toggle clasp. Add color and style to that jeans and top or business suit.
COPPER and BRASS are very beautiful "bohemian" metals, if you will, that have been used for centuries. They are nickel free and allergic reactions to them are very rare. Brass is an alloy of approximately 70%copper and 30% zinc. Keeping copper/brass clean and dry, removing any oil or perspiration helps prevent oxidation.. Although they can tarnish over time, copper and brass resist tarnish better than many other jewelry metals (including sterling which turns black). When they do oxidize they take on a soft brown, antiqued color as they darken, a much sought after "vintage" look in jewelry. The tarnish on both copper and brass can be easily removed if you prefer an bright look.

Turquoise was one of the earliest gems to be used for personal adornment. It was used by Ancient Egypt rulers around 5500 BC. The name Turquoise dates to 16th century and derived from Old French word for "Turkish", because it entered Western Europe through Asia Minor.
