Where do began on this description for this outstanding 3 piece White Fox Creation set.
I believe I will begin with the Navajo pendant, because I normally build a set around the pendant. The pendant for this set was made by Navajo artist Danny Clark. Danny lives on the Navajo nation just outside of Gallup New Mexico. He has been making jewelry for over 40 years and has an unmistakable Navajo style. I did try to stay with the traditional Navajo look, from the turquoise and coral selection, to the Navajo bench made beads. With the exception of the 2 end beads and the crimp cover at the very end, all the beads in the pendant necklace are Navajo made. The 4 ex-large 14 mm beads are signed by the artist LB sterling for Navajo artist Lee Brown. The other stamped sterling beads are also Navajo made but not signed. The beads in the 15 strand necklace has the same ex-large signed beads and the same stamped sterling. However I added a 4 stamped kokopelli beads that are not Navajo made. They are southwestern but not Native American made.

The extra large coral beads are from the South China Sea. I found these from a trader out of Albuquerque who has been buying and selling coral for over 40 years (since the mid 70s) and these were some of the finest he had. I purchased all that he had and was able to create this set with a few left over. The beads are a rich red with beautiful wefts of deep golden and black. Just beautiful beads.

The fine ground coral that is in the small necklace and the long necklace is Mediterranean coral. It is the extremely fine ground , only 1 ½ mm in the turquoise and 2 mm in the coral. The beads are so tiny it took me months to string the 21 strands for this set. Not that I strung every day, I did not, I would work on a few strands and than put it away for sometimes weeks. I had to have excellent lighting to see the holes and I had to be feeling very calm and patient. Thus it took months (~:

Now about the coral…. All of the coral in this set is ALL natural un-stabilized. What that means is if you leave this necklace in your jewelry box and hardly ever ware it, the coral will dry and become dull looking. NOT TO WORRY. Take a tiny bit of cedar oil found at Lowes or other construction stores or a tiny bit of vitamin E oil and place it on your fingers. Rub the beads and Voila a rich red color returns to the coral. However if you ware the pieces often your own body oils should do the trick.

This is an outstanding one of a kind set that will become a family heirloom to be passed down for generations.
