This handmade woven 18 gauge sterling silver chain necklace was created by Travis Teller. Travis is the son of famous Navao silversmiths, Everett & Mary Teller and he made the necklace, although it is hallmarked with his parent's EMT inside a fish hallmark. This versatile necklace is the perfect way to display your latest Native American pendant - it looks great with any pendant that has a large enough bale. Or you can wear two or three of these necklaces stacked or twisted together, as shown. All of the Teller's pendant have bales that are large enough to fit on this chain.
The necklace is made from 18 gauge sterling silver wire that is carefully woven into a 3/8 diameter (bigger than the size of a pencil) heavy rope necklace.
The necklace is available in 2 lengths:
Woven part 16-1/2 long, but the total length is 19 end to end including the silver links & hook.
Woven part 21 long, but the total length is 23-1/2 end to end including the silver links & hook.
Brand new and in perfect condition. Gift Box and Certificate of Authenticity included. Purchased directly from Everett, Mary & Travis Teller. You can't get a better guarantee of authenticity than that!

About Everett & Mary Teller: These self-taught silversmiths have been making jewelry since 1988. They show their work in galleries as well as prestigious art shows such as The Heard Museum and Santa Fe Indian Markets. Travis has taken over making these necklaces from his parents and his work is every bit as good as theirs.
