Fantastic Native American handmade inlaid bear pendant, created by Navajo micro-inlay artist, Matthew Jack, featuring a southwest butte and pueblo scene with a black night sky. Set in silver, the pendant is intricately inlaid with hundreds of tiny hand-cut, semi-precious stones such as jasper, tiger's eye, coral, jet and colorful lab opal. There are many tiny sterling silver inlaid dots to represent stars, moons, planets and a comet with a double lab opal tail streaking across the night sky.
The pendant measures 2 inches long, nose to tail by 2-1/4 inch tall, including the inlaid bale, by over 1/4 inch thick. It weighs 34 grams. The over-sized inlaid bale can accommodate a necklace 5/8 inches by 1/2 inches. Shown here with a 8mm silver bead necklace (sold separately). The bale is inlaid with sterling silver stars, a coral planet, and lab opal comet tails.
Brand new and in perfect condition. Gift Box and Certificate of Authenticity included. Hallmarked by the artist, Matthew Jack (he is pictured below). Matthew creates amazing works of art! He is one of the best young Navajo inlay artists working in Gallup, NM. His work is absolutely breathtaking!
