Heidi BigKnife Necklace of Silver and Mother of Pearl With Gold Accents
This necklace celebrates the power of women everywhere. It's by Shawnee artist Heidi Bigknife, who handmade every single last detail of silver and mother of pearl with 18kt gold accents. If you look closely, hanging from the naturally textured silver open links of chain, you'll see an etched woman's head in the detachable mother-of-pearl pendant. 18kt gold rivets are inset into the pendant - they're small but such an important detail!
The necklace comes from the private collection of Martha Struever. Marti saw this necklace and had to have it! She adored the handmade nature of the piece and the focus on women.
The piece is signed on the reverse. Handmade hook and eye closure makes the piece adjustable. The long necklace measures 28" open from end to end. Each larger handmade silver link measures 1". The center detachable pendant measures 1 1/2". Excellent condition.
