About The Graduated Necklace of Stamped Sterling Beads w/ Matching Earrings

Sterling silver rolled sheet and drawn wire were used in creation of the graduated larger and smaller hogan spacer beads.  The backed "button" style clip back earrings are fitted with a quality Omega loop finding.

Each of the graduated beads are asembled from at least three (3) pieces of silver, stamped with their portion of a meticulous, detailed decoration.  There is a band forming the center, to which end caps have been soldered.

The stamped design is repeated on the large low-domed button disc earrings.  Unstamped disc hogan beads serve as decorative spacers between the barrel-shaped large beads.  They also finish the back of the necklace to the signed cone and a hook & eye clasp.

About the Artist Born circa 1951, Nelson is a Navajo jeweler/ silversmith whose simply stamps his creations "HOWARD".  

Active since the 1970's, Nelson's work was marketed by the Lovena Ohl Gallery and later by the Waddell Trading Company, both in Scottsdale, AZ.

His designs are crisp and uncluttered, resulting in quiet, understated drama.  His workmanship is laudable.
