The Artifacts Collection is a new line of jewelry for 2008. These designs are warm and earthy, a bit more casual, and incorporate neutral color tones, natural gemstones, and darker metals, such as copper, brass, oxidized sterling silver and patinated fine and sterling silver.

Featured here is one piece in the Artifacts Collection. I just love this turquoise stone! It has a warm green color with lots of rich brown veining to give it a very earthy look. Hills Tribe fine silver designs tend to look a bit ethnic, and this Hills Tribe pendant lends nicely to the overall feel of this necklace. One Swarovski crystal and a faceted smoky quartz rondelle hang from an oxidized sterling silver chain. The necklace is brown leather cord with a trigger clasp and 3" extension chain, lengthening this necklace from 15" to 18".
