Santo Domingo / Navajo crafted geometric design motif necklace in sterling silver with turquoise accent from the Mary and Everett Teller collection
Made entirely by hand at the Teller family studio in New Mexico comes this lovely and unique geometric design motif necklace with turquoise accent. Showcasing the precision and talents of the Teller family of artists, this geometric design necklace is among the top of the line in contemporary jewelry from Native American artists today. The Teller family of artists are well respected and highly regarded as leaders in the art of Native American jewelry making.
Using solid sterling silver and a technique known as "overlay" this necklace is actually two distinct layers of sterling silver. One layer is the shape of the geometric design and the second layer has the design cut-out's found on each part of the necklace. After the designs are finished, the second layer of sterling silver is annealed to the bottom layer thus creating a finished geometric design. This process is time consuming and requires a great deal of precision but when completed in the way the Tellers demonstrate, it will yield a very unique and special piece.
To complete the work, the necklace was finished with a single cabochon of natural gem-grade turquoise chosen specifically for this piece.
This geometric design necklace we see today is tomorrow's treasured collectible.
Made entirely from solid sterling silver including the handmade link chain, the necklace is set to fit a 22 inch neckline but can be professionally adjusted if needed. The center pendant on the necklace measures approximately 3.5 inches long and 2.25 inches wide across the bottom of the center pendant.
The Teller family signed the necklace on the back side for authenticity.
