Heirloom Statement Necklace with Turquoise & Anasazi Pottery Shard
A work of art for you to wear, showcasing the stunning beauty of mother nature in tandem with the human capacity to imagine and create. An heirloom adornment.
This one-of-a-kind necklace was created by my incredibly talented neighbor, Fred, a silversmith working in traditional Navajo technique. No pre-fab components - every part of this necklace was created by nature or by hand.
The sterling silver beads are completely hand-formed: they began as an ingot of silver that was rolled into a flat sheet, then cut and hammered into small bowl shapes. Pairs of these half-rounds were then soldered together (flawlessly, seamlessly!) to form each sterling orb. Incredible craftsmanship.
The focal point of this necklace is a gorgeous shard of Anasazi pottery, ethically gathered from a private ranch in Arizona. It is estimated to be 800 to 1200 years old. The deep earthiness of the pottery is complemented by stacks upon stacks of Arizona turquoise.
Necklace measures 22 inches long, with a sterling clasp. Turquoise and Anasazi pottery focal piece measures 2.5 inches tall and 2.25 inches wide.
Handmade in Wyoming.
