Large highly decorated Navajo turquoise, coral, bear claw gorget choker necklace. The silversmith has created a gorget styled setting sporting a large polished turquoise nugget and two (2) sticks of branch coral in the center. The stones have been set into hand cut serrated bezels flanked with silver bird wings, large silver drops, and long scrolls. The artist continues decorating by evenly balanced silver feathers, scrolls, and silver drops placed on both sides of the stones. All mounted to a scorched silver base framed with thick gauge smooth wire sporting decorative stampwork. The artist continues by hanging a large decorative pendant from the gorget that highlights on a large bear claw along with a large polished turquoise nugget and piece of branch coral on one side with silver decoration on the other side of a large silver feather, flower, bird wing, scrolls, and multiple silver drops. The turquoise nugget is set in a serrated bezel wrapped with twisted wire with the coral mounted on top of the claw holder also set into a serrated bezel. The artist finishes the necklace by making a large 5mm handmade silver cable chain along with a handmade shepherds hook clasp that comes off both outer tips of the gorget. Each chain is 6” long making the necklace a choker.

The necklace is hard to measure, but laying it out and running each chain out away from the gorget measures 15” end to end. The gorget measures 4” across from tip to tip and is 3 1/2” tall. The attaches bear claw pendant measures 2 3/4” by 2 1/8” across. Theoretically it has a wearable length of 11” measured from the clasp to bottom of claw pendant. The necklace weighs a healthy 82.9 grams (2.92 oz or 2.67 ozt) and is stamped AD by the silversmith. Guaranteed sterling silver. Unique Navajo claw choker gorget necklace! $644.95
