We made this White Fox Creation using a pendent made by Navajo Artist Ray Jack. Ray has made a name for himself with his spectacular inlay designs. The tiny detail and keen use of color sets his designs apart from many of his peers.
The pendent has a onyx background with tiny holes that have been drilled into the black stone and filled with sterling silver. Then the center has an intricate inlay arrow. Ray has used turquoise, coral and mother of pearl. The silverwork on the outside features sterling twist rope, scallops and droplets.
To accent the pendent we have used 6mm onyx beads accented with turquoise, coral and southwestern stamped sterling beads.
Stones: Onyx, Turquoise, Coral
Necklace Length: 22 1/2"
Size of Pendent: 1 3/4" not including hook or bail, 2 1/2" with hook and bail. by 1" wide
Signed: Ray Jack, Sterling. I do not know what happened that the piece was stamped sterling 3 times with part of one stamp covering part of Ray Jack's name. We do have several of his pieces and this is his stamp but it looks like the sterling stamp got away from him.
