Many vibrant and colorful natural materials like pen shell, jet, mother-of-pearl, gold lip shell, orange spiny oyster shell, turquoise and red coral are presented in an all hand-fabricated sterling silver Koshare necklace and earrings set by Beverly Etsate. Each gorgeous station hosts a ceremonial and sacred clown called a "Koshare". Beverly inlaid all the hand-cut materials in such a way as to give dimension and a bit of height to each Koshare.
The earrings hang at about 1 1/2" long and are 3/4" wide. The overall necklace's length is about 18". The center station of the necklace is about 2 1/2" long including the lovely silver dangles, and is 1 1/4" wide. Signed by the artist.

Charles Martinez, Jr.
This necklace is a show stopper! Charles Martinez, Jr. carved a beautiful Bear from the spiral of a melon shell, a very large type of sea snail. On the shell he overlaid an alternating heartline of red coral. A wonderful Dragonfly friend is incised on the bear. This bear pendant is about 2 1/2" from nose to tail and 1 1/4" long, with a red coral eye. Above the bear are several other carvings, all of them carry their own unique personality. Highest on the necklace are two Beavers, one is carved of luscious mother of pearl shell, the other of Picasso marble. There are two Eagles, again one is mother of pearl shell but the other is a rich green serpentine. There is a Frog of Picasso marble and a Badger of red coral. Just above the bear pendant are two graceful birds of mother of pearl shell. Each animal has inlaid eyes of black jet or bright turquoise and range in size from 3/4" to 1 1/2" long. With a secure threaded clasp this necklace is 23" long. Signed by the artist.
Mary C. Lovato, Kewa (Santo Domingo)
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.
