Thomas Francisco Pendant of Dry Creek Turquoise in Contemporary Silver Setting
The pale green turquoise in this pendant by Navajo jeweler Thomas Francisco is enchanting, almost ethereal. It's from the Dry Creek mine.
Thomas Francisco has set the turquoise in a strong contemporary silver setting made by hand.
From the top of its bale, the pendant measures 2 1/8" x 1 5/16" and is signed on the reverse. The bale has an opening of 3/8" so it would fit 1/4" beads or a larger chain.
It's a more recent piece from a private collection
