One of a kind and simply stunning!

This trapezoidal pendant of inlay and sterling silver is an absolutely stunning piece of jewelry. It hangs gently suspended on a necklace of handmade sterling silver melon and barrel beads.

The sterling silver base of the pendant has carved inlay designs of beautiful turquoise, jet, pipestone and jasper.  These gemstones balance perfectly with the raised top layer, which is made of the same inlaid carved gemstones in a different very intricate design.  The inlay of the same stones continues on and over the bale. The center of the pendant is flanked with sterling silver panels of carved symbols. Abraham’s attention to minute detail is amazing. This piece is perfection.
