I have listed this beautiful set with two different short accented necklaces. We made them and could not decide which we liked best, so I put both sets out on social media and both were favorited numerous time and we could not tell which was liked the best, so we decided to list them twice.
As far as describing them let me begin with the large focal pendant made by renowned Navajo artist Mary Ann Spencer. Mary Ann Spencer became a silversmith at the age of 13. Growing up in Gallop NM she was surrounded by artist her entire life and grew up to have a passion for the art of silversmithing.
For this pendent Mary Ann used a large beautiful piece of White Buffalo and accented it with outstanding silver work. To this beautiful pendant we added black onyx beads accented with white Howlite and large 8 and 10 mm southwestern stamped sterling beads. Then to give it that over the top piazza this pendant deserves, we added black onyx beads inlaid with Australian Opals. The chain is beautiful enough to be worn alone or it is just spectacular with the extra large pendant.
Moving on from the pendant necklace we have the long 10 strand piece. This necklace has 10 strand of fine ground black and white marble accented with tiny black spinel beads and sterling silver spacers. These 10 strands all come together with a extra large Navajo hand made sterling bead. Then we added various southwestern stamped sterling beads with large black onyx and white Howlite beads.
Finally we complete the set we made a matching shorter 5 strand necklace out of the same ground marble accented with tiny faceted spinel beads and sterling spacers. Also this necklace looks great inside a shirt collar with the long matching necklace worn on the outside of your shirt.
