The internal measurement of the cuff is 6 1/2" including a 1" opening. Signed by the artist.
Mary C. Lovato's jewelry creations are highly collectible! Mary has looked to the past, to a time before European settlers arrived, and been inspired by what her ancestors created. With these earrings she has turned to the canyon walls and petroglyphs of hand and spiral designs. 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.
The mallard is thought to be the most abundant and wide-ranging duck on the planet. The male, or drake, is the more distinctively colored of the mallards. Its familiar green head sits a top a white neckband that sets off a chestnut-colored chest and gray body.

About 1 1/4" long, with a wing span of about 1 1/2" with a sterling silver eye. All hand fabricated and signed by the artist. Silver chain sold separately.

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.
