Description of the Item:
Sterling Silver Inlaid Necklace and Earrings
Here is an impressive creation by award-winning Navajo artist Calvin Begay. Nine pieces are carefully inlaid with either a full night landscape of adobe villages or with a night sky scene, using black jet, opal mother of pearl, and jasper. The largest piece measures 1 3/4" x 1/2", total length is approximately 18". Each element has a hinge so it lays perfectly on the neck line. The matching earrings measure 1-1/4" in total length and hang on silver dangle posts.
Calvin Begay has a unique ability to translate traditional Navajo inlay techniques into jewelry that reflects his Native American heritage, yet has elegant and contemporary flair. Calvin's work is prized by clients and collectors, not only in the Southwest, but throughout the United Stated and the world. The stunning beauty of the untamed West is reflected in his combination of color and design that create unforgettable pieces of wearable art.
