Vivid coral and turquoise surrounded by sterling silver, then overlaid on a bed of mother of pearl shell. These treasures are about 2" long, including hand fabricated sterling silver hooks, and 1 1/2" wide. Signed by the artist.
From the master herself, Mary C. Lovato, we offer this wearable work of art. A mosaic of crushed turquoise from different mines in different hues of blues and greens with matrix colors that range from black to white, even ocher yellow. In this universe of turquoise Mary outlined a coral spiral and a star, and a coral and jet half-moon in sterling silver. Framed with sterling silver and overlaid on gold lip shell the pendant is about 2 5/8" long and 2" at the top. On the back Mary attached a sterling silver bale through which runs a luscious string of turquoise beads. These beads are about 21" long finished with sterling silver melon shaped beads and a large hook and eye closure. One red coral bead accents the strand. Signed by the artist.
