This lovely small pendant was created by Navajo Artist Lyle Piaso. The King Manassa
turquoise stone is sky blue with gold. I love the border being etched like that.
It comes with a nice 18" sterling silver chain.
It's marked sterling and signed.
It's 1" tall, plus 3/8" bail, by 5/8" at their widest point.
Pendant weight: 5.2 grams on my scale.
Lyle is a third generation Navajo silversmith, originally from Albuquerque, New Mexico. He attended Chinle High School in Chinle, Arizona. He went on to attend the Community College in Tsaile, Arizona. After earning his degree in accounting, Lyle moved back to Albuquerque. Upon returning to New Mexico, Lyle began to silversmith along side his father Joe Piaso Jr., who has continued to inspire him over the years.
Sure to make a Fine addition to any collection, or a great gift!
