Timothy Bailon, Ke-Wa - Santo Domingo Pueblo - New Mexico, USA - Native American Jewelry
Handsome medium-sized two-sided pendant (supplied with the black cord the artist provided) . Timothy does really pretty combination of metal and stone work that is unusual in the Ke-wa mosaic work. I've only seen one other artist do anything similar and I'm not sure if they are related. He does very little work with wholesalers so typically you can only access his work at the few regional shows at which he displays.
Please read the information at the link below about the metals & materials used by Timothy.
Omegas, silver chains, leather straps, and liquid silver can be purchase separately in Accessories under the Jewelry heading.
Purchased directly from artist.
Metal: Not sure on this. The top and perimeter of piece is not magnetic. These same areas imprint and melt ice immediately. That said, the top of the bale has a little area on the top that is copper-colored. I suspect this may be silver plated copper. The body of the piece is magnetic so I believe the "wave" is some kind of silver-colored base metal.
Materials: Turquoise (Blue) & Serpentine. The back of the pendant is a solid piece of serpentine.
Height x Width Overall: 2-7/8"H x 1-7/8"W
