Santa Fe Indian Market

I have been working really hard for this show! One-of-a-kind fine art pieces take time to make, I wish I could post everything I am creating as I make it. To be in this show has been a dream of mine – and it’s coming true! I am honored and grateful to be one of the chosen artists to be at this event.

This is a big deal!

I hope to see some of you there. If you read my blog, stop by and say “Hello.”

Tear-shaped Coral and Silver Shadowbox Pendant

Coral Hollow Tear 1Tear-shaped Coral and Silver Shadowbox Pendant

Brushed silver carries red coral punctuated by the deep black in the shadowbox. The cut out at the top of the pendant flows with the overall shape of the tear and the coral. Holes in the side of the pendant allow the necklace to be seen through the front.
Entirely hand-crafted, this pendant is approximately a two inches long by an inch-and-a-half wide and a quarter inch deep. The coral is one-of-a-kind, as is the entire piece. Shown with a sixteen-inch silver omega necklace (separate from the pendant). Hand-signed on the back.
