This exceptional necklace was created using and Extra Large pendent made by renowned artist Mary Ann Spencer. Mary Ann Spencer became silversmith at 13 years of age. Growing up in Gallop NM she was surrounded by artist her entire life and grew to have a passion for the art which you can clearly see in her work. Mary Ann not only learned from those around her but took classes honing her trade and become a "Master Craftsman". Her work is to perfection and highly sought after by collectors and southwest jewelry enthusiast alike.
For this pendent Mary Ann used a large beautiful piece of White Buffalo and accented it with outstanding silver work. Then we added black onyx beads accented with white howlite and large 8 and 10mm southwestern stamped sterling beads. Then to give it that over the top piazza the pendent deserved we added black onyx beads inlaid with Australian Opal. The chain is beautiful enough to be worn also or is just spectacular with the extra large pendent.
