This scalloped-edge pendant by Navajo silversmith Jerry Platero is set with a combination of ovals and teardrops of natural, untreated Candelaria turquoise from Nevada. The silver cross and bezels are polished to a lustrous finish, while the decorative stampwork which highlights the scalloped edges was oxidized. This cross pendant has a shepherd's hook on back to string it on a chain or on silver beads.
