CHRISTMAS CREATIONS: what I made for Christmas presents

this is a 50″ strand of sterling chain and turquoise links. On one end, there is a large lobster clasp, and, on the other end, there is a large “mystery stone” oval (this stone looks mysteriously like it might be turquoise, or chrysocolla, or something else… my seller could not name it for me, so I bought it because it was beautiful — I talked about these beads earlier…and included close-up photos… when I went back to get more and they had none.

with the lobster clasp, the chain can be wrapped multiple times, or doubled and then clasped, or wrapped one or two times, as a lariat.
