Calvin Martinez Royston Turquoise Sterling Ingot Shadowbox Pendant

Calvin Martinez is consistently one of our favorite silversmiths and excels in every one of his smithing endeavors. His designs are particularly compelling, melding the tenets of Navajo Traditional Revival jewelry with his unique capacity to hybridize the traditional.

This pendant is a holloware piece, meaning that it is made from two separate pieces of hammered ingot sheet silver (a flat sheet which serves as the backing and a convex portion which rises above the plane of the flat back) which form a hollow body within the piece. This stone of natural, untreated Royston turquoise from Nevada is set in a shadowbox cut-out and secured in a handmade notched bezel. It's a beautifully executed piece with perfect stampwork. The bale on this will accommodate Erma Arviso's antiqued Sterling beads up to 7 mm. diameter.

Hallmarked C.MTZ inside an arrowhead and stamped Navajo and Sterling on back.

Stone: 13/16" x 1/2"

Dimensions of pendant (excluding bale): 1 7/8" x 1 1/8"

Total hang: 2 5/8"
