Selena Warner-Turquoise with Navajo Pearls, JSWN7-13
Selena Warner is a Navajo silversmith from Gallup, New Mexico. She has been improving her craft for about twenty years. It is obvious that her multi-colored necklaces and multi-stones are appealing to her and collectors. She uses feminine stones such as spiny oyster shell, lapis, coral, and turquoise. She uses a blend of traditional and contemporary techniques in her pieces. This necklace has three large turquoise stones that have a lighter shade of blue. The Navajo pearls have been rolled out and shaped herself with a large clasp hook to tie it together. The entire piece has a medium oxidized look to give it a vintage touch. A beautiful necklace to add to your jewelry collection.
