For this White Fox Creation we used a pendant set with an extra large gorgeous turquoise stone and finished with sterling droplets around the outside edge.
The pendant in not Native American made but it is made of Argentium Sterling which has a high silver content than regular Sterling. It is stamped 950 where regular Sterling is 925. You might think well it is going to be softer and less durable because it has a higher purity. However, Argentium Sterling has a specific alloy added into the other 5% which actually makes it harder and more tarnish-resistant that regular Sterling. It is also stamped C & Ross, I looked through a large data base of Jewelers marks and did not find this one.
We than added my favorite sterling beads. These bead range in size from 6 mm to 10 mm. They have a beautiful sharp southwestern stamp that has been oxidized to bring out the design. Then we added sterling corrugated spacer and pieces of matching turquoise beads.
