PATCHWORK OF MANY COLORS ( Native American Nelson Garcia Santo Domingo Indian Inlay Pendant & Earrings ): Both traditional and yet modern, this huge, bold pendant will make your eyes pop! A complex mosaic stone to stone inlay design hallmarked by Santo Domingo artist Nelson Garcia. This vintage (c. 1980) triangular Sterling Silver pendant is inlayed with strips of turquoise, pipestone, green and orange spiny oyster shell, clam shell, mother-of-pearl, coral, lapis and malachite. A cornucopia of colors. It reminds me of a patchwork quilt. There is a huge silver bale that looks wonderful on a neck wire or equally stunning on strands of beads. The bale is wide enough to accommodate the clasp of almost any beaded necklace (black, turquoise, silver, etc.). The circular channel inlay clip earrings are marked “Sterling” and are a remarkable match for the pendant. You could look for years and never find a better pairing.
 
Condition: Excellent.
Size: Pendant without bale 2 1/2” long, 2” wide, 1/4” deep. Bale is 3/4” in diameter, 7/8” wide. Clip Earrings 1” in diameter.
