This classy Necklace showcases a Turquoise and Sterling Silver Cross Pendant by Santa Fe artist Dan Dodson. The Cross is defined by 22 Turquoise round stones, ranging in diameter from 5mm to 10mm. The stones are a rich turquoise-green, with traces of golden brown matrix. They are set in raised Sterling Silver Bezels, and ornamented by 34 handcrafted Sterling Silver Balls. These elements sit on a plate of Sterling Silver that has been cut to mirror the perimeter shape formed by the Turquoise stones. The Sterling plate is oxidized on the front, creating contrast and highlighting the Turquoise and Sterling Silver Balls. The Pendant drapes from a custom V-shaped Sterling Silver Bail that has been stamped in a linear design. The piece is stamped on the back with the artist's hallmark and "Sterling."
We've paired the Turquoise and Sterling Silver Cross with Graduated Nevada Turquoise Round Disc. The Disc ranges in dimension from 6mm to 16mm; the change in size is measured, creating a graceful transition from one stone to the next. The Turquoise exhibits a range of hues from sky blue to blue-green, with attractive golden and dark brown matrix. The stones are complemented by 12 Sterling Silver Beads, including four 9mm and 12mm handmade Stamped Rounds on either side of the Pendant Bail and eight 6mm Rounds at the top of the Necklace strand. The Necklace is finished with a Sterling Silver Toggle Clasp and adorned with a Southwest Designs Sterling Charm. The piece weighs 113 grams and is 20-3/4 inches long plus the Pendant, which is 3-1/4 inches by 2-1/4 inches including the 1/2-inch Bail (when wearing, a vertical length of about 10-1/2 inches).
