Young and talented Navajo artist, TJ Perry learned the how to make sterling silver and inlaid stone jewelry from his father Michael Perry, who is known for his exquisite inlay pieces.  It seems TJ has learned very well.

This gorgeous pendant combines highly polished sterling silver with textured silver and accents of turquoise and Mediterranean Coral. The combination of a high shine and texturing brings out the beautiful deep color of the coral.

The face of the pendant is divided into halves. The right side contains textured water designs, while the left side hosts stunning coral and turquoise. The bezel encircling the turquoise cabochon is hand cut. The bail of the pendant continues the use of inlaid coral. There is also coral inlaid along the edges of the entire pendant with rare natural Mediterranean red coral. The entire pendant measures 3 ¼” by 1 ¾”.

This pendant is absolutely stunning. Slip it onto strands of coral or wear it with a sterling silver collar. It will be perfect either way.
