This pendant necklace by Navajo silversmith Larose Ganadonegro features one of her signature cluster pendants strung on a three-strand necklace of Erma Arviso's antiqued Sterling beads strung in combination with beads of Kingman turquoise. The strands consist of fluted and smooth Sterling beads which form a necklace nineteen inches in length. A four-inch extension chain is attached to the necklace to allow for additional adjustment to the length of the necklace.
This cluster pendant is set with fine-grained, glassy smooth stones of natural, untreated Royston turquoise. The pendant can be removed from the necklace so that other pendants may be worn on the necklace or the necklace may be worn for the simple beauty of its rich strands of Kingman turquoise and Sterling beads. A pair of matching loop earrings are included.
Hallmarked La next to a picture of a rose (for her name Larose) and stamped Sterling on back.
