Figural Turquoise and Amethyst Pendant
The artist has always lived around water (which is scarce and precious on the high desert) and incorporates some reference to it in almost every piece.
In this lovely pendant, there are two references to water: the blue, natural Fox turquoise, and the spiral motif, which is an ancient symbol for rivers, water, and the river of life.
At the bottom, a natural amethyst cabochon is another cool stone, perhaps reflecting the depths of a river.
Shaped like an abstract figure, the pendant is small in size but large in visual impact, thanks to the vivid turquoise and the meticulous silver work.
A beautiful pendant for those who prefer their impact to be subtle in size, yet splendid in design, materials, and workmanship.
