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 stones of natural Turquoise Mountain turquoise are set in a pair of post earrings. Cecil Atencio set these pretty stones in smooth bezels, wrapped the bezels with twist wire and decorated the border with stampwork as well as saw and file work.
Stamped "Sterling" but Cecil did not put his hallmark on these. We guarantee that these are handmade by Cecil Atencio.
Stones: 5/8" x 1/2"
Dimensions of earrings: 1" x 7/8"
