This interesting pendant was made by Texas silversmith John Szymak, who primarily worked between the 1950s and 1970s. The silver has a curvy, convex leaf-like shape with a rich shade of red glass enamel that follows most of the curves, except at the top, where it dips so that the red-enamel forms a heart, with plain silver at the center of the heart in the shape of Texas. I often see combined Texas and heart motifs which can be interpreted as a play on 'Deep in the Heart of Texas', the name of a popular 1941 song. The silver on both the front and back is quite tarnished and could stand a good cleaning, left to the new owner if desired. The enamel is in very good condition, with some unevenness at the edges which was most likely always this way. It can be seen in some of the magnified photos, but not so much by the naked eye. Jewelry made by Szymak is quite collectible and is not as easily found as items by other makers.

Marked SZYMAK STERLING on the back.

Shown in the last photo between a quarter and a dime for scale, this most lends itself to being worn on a necklace chain as a pendant, but could also be worn as a large charm on a bracelet.
