I have a client whose mother has an ornate turquoise piece purchased
45-50 years ago. One stone is now missing. It is a half of a round
ball -half-round but not a bead…on the small side. I haven’t
measured it yet but I’m guessing the whole ball was 5-6mm. There was
no matrix visible…stones are a dark green-blue.
Her mom would really like this fixed. I am fairly new in jewlery
making and don’t have a source for these stones. Not only matching
the size, half-round, but the color will be difficult but I want to
try if I can.
If anyone has a source for these stones or a contact that I could
speak with further about this piece, I would be appreciative.
