Born in 1956, Navajo silversmith Cecil Atencio has been smithing silver since his early twenties. He was born near Chaco Canyon at Kimbeto, New Mexico, which is little more than a curve in the gravel road situated in a place with blinding dust storms. He currently resides in Tohajiilee, New Mexico with his wife, children and grandchildren.
These gorgeous, matched triangular stones of natural Fox turquoise from Nevada are set in a pair of post earrings. Cecil set these thick, pretty stones in smooth bezels and wrapped the bezels with twist wire.
Hallmarked C. ATENCIO and stamped Sterling on the back of the posts.
Stones: 13/16" x 9/16"
Dimensions of each earring: 1" x 11/16"
