Here is an innovative sterling silver pendant, created by award winning Navajo artist, Lorenzo Shirley. The interesting pendant sports three genuine natural Bisbee turquoise stones. I purchased this pendant directly from the artist and he referred to the pendant as a three maiden design (for his daughters and wife).
The pendant measures 1-3/4 by 1-1/2, not counting bale. A 18-inch sterling silver chain accompanies the piece.
Lorenzo Shirley is a member of I.A.C.A. and I had the pleasure of meeting him and purchasing this and other jewelry directly from him at the IACA wholesale market. Lorenzo is a relatively young new silversmith who won the 2009 Southwest Indian Art Fair Hartman H. Lomawaima Memorial Award of Excellence in Jewelry, which was awarded for high quality in craftsmanship in jewelry and silversmithing, for one of his bracelets.
Brand new and in perfect condition. Gift Box and Certificate of Authenticity included. Hallmarked by the artist.
