About The Sterling Concho Pendant set with 33 Natural Green Nevada Turquoise Stones

Sterling mill rolled sheet and fine drawn round wire were used to fabricate the body and bale of his statement piece. 

Repousse doming of the concho adds depth and drama to the oxidized stamped design and chiseled definition of the center oval.  Scalloped edging of concho and bale were carefully saw cut and file finished prior to polishing.

All of the bezels have serrated edges to fit more closely the dome curves of the 20 green 3/32" diameter frame rounds and the 12 darkest green 1/8" diameter rounds-11 encircling the large, teal green 3/4" X 7/16" oval center turquoise and 1 dark green round on the bale.  The center oval is the only stone with a rope twist of fine wire at the base of its bezel.

About the Artist (Born 1959, Taos pueblo)  Routinely associated with Buffalo Dancer, a shop located in Taos, New Mexico, Lawrence Archuleta stamps his work with the outline of a buffalo.  Originally choosing to work in coin silver, he later fashioned jewelry using sterling silver.
