Beautiful Hopi seven (7) piece "Man in the Maze" silver overlay concho necklace. The silversmith has created seven (7) conchos that graduate in size of the "Man in the Maze" silver overlay connecting each concho to the next with large soldered jump rings. The artist finishes out the necklace by attaching handmade "dot-dash-dot" styled chains. The previous owner added a 3" extension chain with a lobster clasp at the ends which can be removed if desired. The original handmade chain displays that the silversmith used three (3) wires soldered together to make each "dash" link with single soldered jump rings between.

The necklace measures 26" end to end which includes the extension. It has a wearable length of 13 3/4" measured from clasp to bottom of large focal concho. This also includes the extension. Without the full extension is 12 1/4" wearable. You can also remove half of the extension if desired. The Man in the Maze conchos measure 3/4" diameter, 1" diameter, 1 1/4" diameter, and the largest one measures 1 3/4" diameter. The necklace weighs 65.4 grams (2.31 oz or 2.10 ozt) and is stamped Sterling on all of the conchos by the artist. Beautiful Man in the Maze necklace is like new with little to no previous wear!  $449.95

It is believed that The Man in the Maze symbol reflects on man's journey through life. Once man completes the journey through the maze of life, his spirit is then flown on the back of the eagle to meet the Sungod who then connects man's spirit with the Creator.
