Another one of my “Parent and Child” pieces, this necklace is comprised of two highly polished silver and copper shadowbox beads. The copper is reddened by heating to a very high temperature, and depending on the angle and the lighting, may look purplish maroon to a deep orange red.
The beads may be worn together, or separately, allowing for three different looks.
Signed on the back. Entirely hand-crafted and one-of-a-kind.
This was the first item to sell at the Prescott Indian Art Market last weekend.
