About this Product
Our turquoise bracelet is handmade with genuine sleeping beauty turquoise gemstones mined in Arizona. The center stone is 12x10mm oval with a robin's egg blue color set in sterling silver. Tiny turquoise stones and sterling silver circle links accentuate a southwest look in this adjustable bracelet. The perfect gift idea for a December birthday.
About Sleeping Beauty Turquoise:
The name sleeping beauty came from the mountain where the turquoise was mined. The mountain resembles a sleeping woman laying on her back with her arms crossed. The stone’s color is a vivid robin egg blue with little to no matrix or veining. These beautiful stones were discovered by accident while miners were pulling copper and gold from the mountain. Sleeping beauty turquoise is one of the most treasured turquoise stones in the world.
The Sleeping Beauty Mine stopped producing turquoise in 2012. Since the closure of the mine, the value of this beautiful gemstone continues to rise as supplies become harder to find. Often you will hear sleeping beauty turquoise being called a true gem of the Southwest.
Sleeping beauty turquoise gemstones go through a process of stabilization to harden the gemstone and stabilize the color to prevent fading over time. Turquoise is a very porous material rating 5-6 on the Mohs hardness scale and its color can be altered by elements in the environment. Stabilizing the turquoise ensures hardness and color quality.

Meet the Maker
Handcrafted Jewelry with a Love for Gemstones
Welcome to Linda's Jewelry Shop! I'm Linda, and my son Joe and I are the owners of our jewelry shop in New Hampshire. We create handmade gemstone jewelry in minimal styles with 925 sterling silver and 14K gold filled.
What we love about jewelry making:
We love working with natural gemstones and simple designs that bring out the beauty of the stone. Jewelry making is one of the remaining crafts that cannot be mass produced and there are always new skills to learn and new gemstones to discover. It is such a rewarding feeling when someone purchases one of our jewelry pieces to give to someone special!
What are we working on now:
We are adding our fall jewelry collection of citrine, carnelian, and garnet gemstones. Working on a few new backdrop necklaces designs for fall and winter weddings.
What we are planning next:
We will be creating some gift boxes ideas and necklace and earring sets for the holidays. Hand forged earwires and hoops are planned for the fall and winter.
Down the road we hope to do a few craft shows and gem shows and make some local connections. We are always adding new gemstones and designs to our collection. Just let us know if there is a particular gemstone you are looking for.

How it’s Made
Our bracelet is made with a 12x10mm oval cabochon cut turquoise gemstone as the focal point we set into our sterling silver setting using an epoxy adhesive. Then we secure the stone in place with the 4 prongs.
Next we wrap the little turquoise stones and sterling silver double circle links onto each side using a 24G sterling silver wire, round nose, and chain nose pliers, adding sterling silver corrugated beads in between.
We finish with jump rings and a spring clasp adding a 1 inch extender, and file any rough edges and polish.
If you prefer no extender, or a longer extender, just message us to let us know.

Welcome to Linda's Jewelry Shop. We have added some information and policies below. Please reach out to us at firstname.lastname@example.org if you have any questions or click "contact maker."
Can I return or exchange my jewelry?
We want you to be happy with your jewelry purchase. If you would like to return or exchange an item, please email us at email@example.com to let us know.
For returns please notify us first and return the jewelry within 14 days. Items are to be returned in their original condition unworn and unused in their original box. The buyer assumes return/exchange shipping costs.
Do you offer repairs?
Sometimes things happen, like pulling on an earring while combing your hair....or little ones that tug on a necklace chain. Please let us know if you need a repair. We only charge a fee to cover the costs to replace any missing or damaged items necessary for the repair. If we no longer carry the supplies to repair your jewelry (for instance we may be out of a particular gemstone) we often have alternatives that can be used. Please return the entire jewelry piece, even broken pieces. The buyer assumes return/exchange shipping costs.
Do you make custom orders?
We enjoy making custom orders and are happy to design something just for you. But because these items are customized for you and are not something we currently sell in our shop, we cannot take returns on these items.
How long will it take to ship my order?
Currently we are shipping all orders in 3-5 business days and we ship from New Hampshire with USPS. Shipping is free for orders $35 and over. We add tracking to all our packages.
Custom orders may take additional time. This usually occurs if we have to order certain supplies to make your custom order.
How long is it taking USPS to deliver?
First class takes 3-5 business days on average and Priority mail is taking 2-3 days. Unfortunately delivery delays can occur that are outside of our control.
What if I entered the wrong address?
Please always check the address you entered is correct before completing your purchase. If you entered an incorrect address please let us know as soon as possible so we can make the changes before shipping your item.
If the item ships to the wrong address, it can take quite some time to come back to us. We will notify you when the item comes back and send you a link to purchase another shipping label with the correct address. We are not responsible for items lost due to an incorrect address.
What if I ordered the wrong size?
Sometimes the fit just isn't quite right and you need your necklace or bracelet longer or shorter. Just let us know and we are happy to make adjustments for you free of charge.
How can I make sure I'm ordering the right size?
- The size of each gemstone is provided in the item description or in the "how its made" section under materials.
- We do offer different chain length options for most of our jewelry items. If you are looking for a different length just let us know.
- For measuring necklace chains, the best method is to cut a piece of string and wrap around from behind your neck, bringing both ends in front of you to see what length fits best.
- Our backdrop necklaces have instructions for measuring under the "how its made" section."
- For bracelets, you can cut a piece of string and measure around your wrist. We advise to allow a quarter to half inch extra for the bracelet to hang comfortably. Adjust the string to how you would like your bracelet to hang.
- If you are unsure of your ring size, any local jeweler can check your size for you (usually for free).
How do I return or exchange my jewelry?
With all returns please notify us first at firstname.lastname@example.org. You can place the jewelry in the box it came in, and place the box into a padded bubble envelope. That will protect the jewelry during shipping. We always advise to add tracking to your order that helps us locate the package if a delivery issue occurs.
How long will it take to issue my refund?
We issue refunds within 1-3 business days for items returned in their original condition.
My item arrived damaged. What do I do?
Please let us know right away if an item arrives damaged at email@example.com.
