This unassuming, but enormously talented jeweler is best known for his classic, understated designs.
His favorite style is a band of hand stamped 14-karat gold, over a sterling silver base as seen in this lovely pendant.
The proportions and design are, as in all of Herbert Begaye’s work, elegant and tasteful.
Deep chiseling, and precise stamp work lend the design a simple, but graphic, beauty.
The 14-karat gold overlay is stamped on the body of the pendant, and plain on the bail, offering a contrast in texture.
The gold glistens on the bail, which is also of plain and gleaming silver, relating to half of the concave circle.
The restraint, and exquisitely arranged details of the design, allow you to wear this pendant every day,
Another beautifully wrought, and wearable, combination of precious materials by this wonderful artist.
