This beautiful Native American multi gemstone 4-directions cross sterling silver pendant was handmade by Navajo silversmith, Geneva Apachito. The pendant has three gemstones and three silver crosses. The orange and purple are natural SPiny Oyster and the turquoise is stabilized Sleeping Beauty turquoise. Most Sleeping Beauty turquoise cabs under 12mm are stabilized to prevent fracture.
The pendant measures 1-1/2 inch by 1-1/2 inch not counting the oversized bale and weighs about 17.5 grams. The bale has a usable opening interior of a bit over 1/2 inch. The pendant is shown here with an 8mm "Navajo Pearls" necklace, which is sold separately.
Brand new in perfect condition. The pendant is stamped sterling and has Geneva Apachito's hallmark. Certificate of Authenticity included and gift box included. Geneva was born in 1969 in Soccoro, New Mexico. She was taught silver work by her mother Genevieve Apachito.
Ron Willie makes similar style jewelry, but Geneva has been making this style jewelry lately and her jewelry is every bit as good as Ron's.
