The silverwork in this piece matches in value to the beautiful #8 turquoise stone. I am quite certain this is Number 8 turquoise from its powder blue stone with unique copper/red matrix. Number 8 is from Carlin Nevada and is quite sought after since the mine has been mined out and closed for years, it high quality and unique look.
The piece is signed Jason B. however I am not familiar with this artist, his work is truly outstanding and look much like the Begay family but I have not heard of a Jason Begay.
At any rate the stone is gorgeous and the silver features very intricate double layered blossoms, graceful feathers, weeping or vine droplets and twisted rope. The necklace is finished with a sterling silver link chain.
The matching earrings have the same double blossom and feather design.
