Interesting, one-of-a kind, artisan sterling silver beaded necklace featuring five two-tone oval discs with beautifully engraved artwork. The two-one artwork on the pottery looks like gold, or possibly brass. We can’t test it without risking damage to the necklace.
The disc art depicts an intricately decorated pottery jug or jar that looks like it’s sitting by shimmering waves of water. Above, in the sky, is a stylized cloud. To the right is an interesting shape. Here at the store, it’s been identified either as a bird, the bow of a ship or possibly an alpaca or llama. What an interesting story that is being told here!
The necklace is 22″ long. The engraved discs are in three graduated sizes, 2-1/8″ tall x 1-3/8″ wide, 1-1/2″ tall by 1-1/8″ wide, and 1-3/8″ tall by 1″ wide. The bottom of the necklace has a double strand of beads that extends to about 1-1/4″ above the oval discs.
The necklace has a hook closure, see detail photo above.
The pendant weighs 85.5 grams.
The necklace is marked STERLING, and signed by the artist. The artist hallmark looks like “WHT”, or “WNT”.
This unique estate pre-owned necklace is in excellent vintage condition. Light wear is noticeable with magnification. Please view photos closely.
