Silver and Turquoise Pendant
Leo Yazzie is a veteran award-winner, known for the quality of his stones and his exceptional workmanship. He often works in gold, so an all-silver piece is extra-special. Delicate scale, understated style, extraordinary workmanship, and impeccable materials characterize the work of this long-celebrated artist.
Here, Leo has chosen to let the silver and the single cabochon of natural, brilliant blue Kingman Turquoise, shine.
The turquoise sits snugly in a handmade bezel with four groups of three notches breaking up the sleek, smooth silver. This has been set atop an intricately cut piece of sterling silver boasting beautiful rug pattern designs at the bottom, notches along the sides, and three long, straight lines radiating from the stone. To complete the piece, Leo overlaid the designed piece of silver onto another piece of silver, giving the pendant depth and texture.
Finished with a handmade bale, this seemingly simple pendant will quickly become a favorite in your collection!
