This attractive Necklace showcases a Coral and Sterling Silver Cross by Zuni artists George and Lupeta Leekity. Lupeta is the daughter of Horace Iule, who was known for his mastery in silvercasting, especially his castwork crosses. Lupeta worked with her father from age 13 on, and today she and George cast their own designs, carrying on her father's tradition. The Coral and Sterling Cross is beautifully formed and features six color-matched Coral Stones wrapped in raised Sterling Silver Sawtooth Bezel. Each of the four arms of the Cross end in an elegant 3-prong flourish, which is a Leekity trademark. The Cross has a fixed custom Bail and is stamped on the back with "GL Leekity" and "Sterling." We've paired the Cross with 2 strands of Apple Coral Cylinders, which display hues of coral and coral-red with trace golden matrix. The Coral Cylinders are paired with Sterling Silver Beads, including 4mm Three-Sided Stamped Rounds, and 6-by-11mm Ornate Box Beads. The Necklace is finished with Sterling Silver Rounds and Toggle Clasp, and adorned with a Southwest Designs Sterling Charm. The piece weighs 80 grams and is 20-3/4 inches long plus the Pendant, which is 3 inches by 1-3/4 inches including a 1/4-inch Bail (a vertical hang length of about 9 inches when wearing).
