This listing is for a beautiful pendant. It features beautiful stamp work and is oxidized to give the background of the beautiful sugilite stone that shadow box look.
This pendant came from a repurposed necklace made by Gary Reeves, this is why it is not signed or hallmarked. As you can see, a new bale was put on this. This is a good size pendant at approx. 2" long and 1" wide.
The stone is a beautiful shade of purple. These pictures show the pendant in sunshine and in some shade so you will see different variations in color. Sugilite is a very hard stone to photograph. It has all variations of the purple.It is really a pretty piece made by one the masters. The last picture is the repurposed necklace this came from and it is signed by Gary Reeves and hallmarked sterling silver.
This necklace was repurposed, the owner did not like the way the necklace looked as it was. You wont have the signed one but you will know this was made by Gary Reeves.
Navajo silversmith Gary Reeves could possibly be one of the most recognized names in this industry. His work is found on websites all over the world and his showcase in our Trading Post always seems to have someone looking at it. He concentrates on filling his old style silver with lots of stamp patterns and using good pieces of turquoise, a winning combination. He started working at 15 yrs during the 70's. He comes from a well known family Sunshine Reeves, Darryl and Andy Cadman are his brothers.He went to school in Tohatchi. He went to work in Albuquerque for a shop, that is where he started making the style he still does today. They are all top artists in the community of collectors and Native American peers think quite highly of all these artists. Thank you for visiting my store!! THANKS FOR VISITING MY STORE!
