Heavy decorated vintage Navajo turquoise decorated feather pendant with multiple decorative stamped bead necklace. The silversmith has created a large pendant using a kidney shaped polished turquoise nugget set into a smooth bezel and wrapped with twisted wire. Mounted to a scorched blackened silver plate, the artist decorates by attaching a large handmade silver feather that drapes down one side of the stone. He continues with a single sun stamped button above the stone with two (2) squash flutes and twelve (12) sun stamped buttons that graduate in size and run along the outer rim of the plate from top, around the bottom, and starting back up the other side before butting into the feather tip. The artist also adds a large sun button with a row of two (2) smaller sun buttons separated with a silver drop to the bale of the pendant. The beaded necklace has obviously been strung to the pendant as a permanent setting. The necklace consists of forty four (44) 8mm seamed beads with decorative sunrise stamping on top and bottom of each bead, fourteen (14) 5mm seamed beads, four (4) 4mm hand rolled beads, two (2) 8mm hand rolled beads, two (2) 3mm hand rolled beads, and six (6) mellon beads. All strung on nylon coated beading wire with two (2) 1" long sterling decorative stamped cones (stamping matches same as the stamped beads) and a screw type barrel clasp.

The necklace measures approximately 23" long end to end with a wearable length of 14" measured from clasp to bottom of pendant. The pendant itself measures 3 1/8" by 1 3/4" across. The complete necklace weighs 58.1 grams (2.05 oz or 1.87 ozt) and is unsigned sterling silver. Very nice vintage Navajo turquoise pendant/necklace with plenty of detailed stampwork!  $339.95
