Huge pendant bolo tie necklace, our research showed this was made by Navajo artist and silversmith Jerry Roan before 1977, signed with his interlocked JR on the back, magnificent metalwork, measures 3 & 1/2" tall and 2 & 1/2" at the widest place across, in wonderful condition, old patina what we were told was tested sterling silver, we never tested it ourselves, so silver metal of unknown content. We just had to have it due to the design and wonderful workmanship. One huge and one smaller very tall nugget of turquoise, mine unknown and two generous fat pieces of coral.
Coral probably Mediterranean, possibly color enhanced, the turquoise is probably stabilized for strength. One of the most impressive pieces we have seen. Resembles an owl in my opinion. Bolo cord could of course be removed to wear this as a pendant on a necklace.
Bolo cord laid flat is 18 long when doubled. We can so see this used as a pendant on a necklace or matching turquoise nuggets.But fabulous just the way it is. The artist is now deceased, his older work was always big or unusual. We have enjoyed wearing this for years, it is from our personal possessions. Bought from a fine Southwestern jewelry collector decades ago. This item is in the category "Jewelry & Watches\Ethnic, Regional & Tribal\Necklaces & Pendants".
