Hatch Red and Green Chile Necklace
If you’ve looked and looked and looked for a quality red or green chile pendant and you can’t find one, no need to look any further. Made entirely by hand, each on resembles and is carved to have lumps and curves to feel like a real red or green chile.
For a while, we were only making green chile pendants because I couldn’t find a good priced red colored stone to use for red chile. You would think that coral would be the stone to use, considering that I’m using green turquoise for the green chile necklace, but to much dismay, it’s extremely expensive, extremely for any sizable portion. Let’s just say that it would cost over a thousand dollars to procure a piece that large. Not only is genuine red coral hard to find in that size, it’s hard to come by. I think reef destruction is illegal, so you probably won’t be seeing any, anytime soon.
After several weeks, I managed to find some rough Brazilian red jasper of sizable quantity, for a reasonable price. It just happened to be the perfect color as well. I think the red chile pendant looks great next to the green chile pendant. Click Here to get one!Follow Strange Grain
