This striking Necklace showcases an impressive 26-stone Pendant by Santa Fe artist Dan Dodson. At the center of the Pendant is a Turquoise Heart, wrapped in a raised Sterling Silver Bezel and Twisted Sterling Wire. The center stone is surrounded by 12 Turquoise Teardrops, then 13 Turquoise Rounds, together forming a larger Heart. Each of the smaller Turquoise stones is set in a raised Sterling Silver Bezel and the perimeter stones are spaced by 13 Sterling Silver Balls. The stones are set on a plate of Oxidized Sterling Silver cut to the shape of the Heart. The Pendant hangs from a custom Round Sterling Bail, and is stamped on the back with the artist's hallmark and "Sterling." A terrific example of Dodson's inspiring work. We've paired the Heart Pendant with 2 strands of color-matched Turquoise stones, including Nevada Turquoise Ovals and 5mm green Turquoise Rounds. The Ovals have golden brown matrix, mirroring the brown tones in the Pendant stones. The Turquoise is complemented by translucent green faceted Fire Polished Glass, which emits a subtle sparkle. The stones are highlighted by 5.5mm Oxidized Sterling Silver Rounds, which also flash a bit of shine. At the top of the Necklace the 2 strands of Turquoise Ovals transition to 2 strands of Fire Polished Glass, streamlining the silhouette for a comfortable fit. The Necklace is finished with Sterling Silver Rounds and Toggle Clasp and adorned with a Southwest Designs Sterling Charm. The piece weighs 96 grams and the Necklace is 18-3/4 inches long plus the Pendant, which is 2-1/2 inches by 1-7/8 inches including a 5/8-inch Bail (when wearing, a vertical hang length of about 8 inches).
