Ithaca Peak Turquoise, Dolomite, Black Jade on Sterling Silver
This fabulous overlay pendant corn maiden by award winning jeweler Tim Yazzie offers many prayers for rain in her carefully constructed design.
Her face is a beautiful cabochon of natural Ithaca Peak Turquoise. Her tablita and kilt include feathers, corn stalks, and rain symbols. The bottom feathers of this gorgeous overlay pendant are natural Ithaca Peak turquoise inlaid with dolomite and black jade. The feather designs along the bottom of the pendant are a continued prayer for rain. This pendant is 4 ½” x 1 ¼”, and will hang beautifully from a sterling silver collar or chain, or stands of heishi.
Tim sees the idea of a design in his mind first, then draws the design free-hand on the sterling silver. He lets the silver, natural stones, and the other materials that he is using guide his creative process. Using the finest materials, each unique and beautiful, Tim pushes his native pueblo art to new horizons. His work is considered “pueblo style” and features intricate silver overlay work with Southwestern motifs.
