Museum-quality stone or shell, in a magnificent, sterling silver necklace; two things this award-winning jeweler is known for.
Noted for modern pieces that are strongly traditional, as well, Jack Tom makes it look easy.
However, this breathtaking necklace is the result of consummate expertise and an artistic vision that is able to relate honored Navajo traditions in a splendidly modern way.
Beads are always a Tom specialty, and here we have three different styles and sizes, as well as long tapered cones, at the top.
Impeccably fabricated, the beads include “flying saucer’ flattened rounds, long cylinders, and beautiful fluted beads.
The beautifully made naja is hand-stamped and hand-chiseled, with a squash blossom on each end.
The round, webbed, Natural Turquoise cabochon is surrounded by a handmade castellated bezel and dangles from the center of the naja. There is even a repousse accent piece directly above the naja, a lovely touch!
The necklace comes with matching beaded earrings to finish off the look.
The perfection of workmanship and extraordinary beauty make this necklace a spectacular piece of jewelry, to be enjoyed by the wearer and admirers!
