This striking Necklace showcases a Tibetan Turquoise and Sterling Silver Rectangular Pendant by Santa Fe artist Dan Dodson. The Turquoise Stone is bright blue with stormy black matrix, adding drama. The Turquoise is encased in a raised Sterling Bezel and set on a plate of polished Sterling Silver that mirrors the shape of the Stone. The Pendant hangs from a V-shaped Sterling Bail. The piece is stamped on the back with the artist's hallmark and "Sterling." We've paired the Pendant with color-matched Turquoise Ovals, ranging in size from 14-by-18mm to 20-by-28mm. The Ovals are interspersed with 8mm Faceted Vintage Jet Beads, and accented by jet black Seed Beads that are woven across the top of each Stone. The Stones are highlighted by four 16-by-20mm Sterling Silver Urn Beads, and 10mm Sterling Rondelles. At the top of the Necklace the Turquoise Ovals transition to 2 strands of 6mm Turquoise Rounds and Onyx Rounds, streamlining the shape of the piece and ensuring wearer comfort. The Necklace is finished with 6mm and 8mm Sterling Rounds and a Sterling Toggle Clasp, and is adorned with a Sterling Kokopelli, a Native American icon that embodies the American Southwest. The piece weighs 142 grams and is 20-1/2 inches long plus the Pendant, which is 2-5/8 inches by 1-3/8 inches including a 3/4-inch bail.
