We were able to acquire 4 of these hard to find "new old stock" from an individual who had a store out west. We purchased 2 turquoise 1 set and 1 necklace and 2 multi stone sets. Each piece is different and just outstanding.
This piece was made by Navajo artist Olson Charleston for a Touch of Santa Fe. Touch of Santa Fe is a company founded by Calvin Begay where he commissions excellent artist to fashion his designs and Olson is known for his outstanding craftsmanship and his work with channel inlay. Each link has been individually crafted out of sterling silver, inlaid with turquoise and linked together using a barrel and pin method so each piece pivots with ease, making for a comfortable, flowing fit.
Metal: Sterling Stamped
Size of Links: From 1 3/4" long by 1/4" wide at bottom to 3/4" long by 1/8" wide at top
Total Number of links: 24
Number of Inlaid Links: 9
Length of Necklace: Approximately 19"
Signed: Touch of Santa Fe Sterling on the clasp
Bottom of Necklace Signed: TSF for Touch of Santa Fe Dina Navajo word for Navajo and Olson Harleston I believe the strike of the stamp was off leaving off the C because Olson Charleston worked for Touch of Santa Fe and this looks like his work.
