THE PENDANT:

Definitely deserving to be framed, the historical,museum like clay figure is centuries old & comes from the 'Zapotec' civilization of Oaxaca Mexico,who were an indigenous pre-Colombian civilization that flourished in the Valley of Oaxaca in Mesoamerica...This culture dates as far back to at least, 2500 years!!It is framed by a surrounding cluster of natural,gem/grade A quality,webby Nevada Lone Mountain turquoise..The pendant is backed by sterling & the figure is bezel set atop..The turquoise beautifully frames the shape of the figure..Because of the depth of color the turquoise has,only helps to bring contrast to the earthy figure..It truly depicts how they dressed,the jewelry they wore,etc..This one has large round earrings that are very Maya looking & also you can see,what looks like a double strand necklace with a pendant in the center.

THE BEADS:

Starting with 2 half's,they are stamped with the same design,so when they are soldered together,the design connects itself,as if one.The stamping is like ovals all around the bead.There is oxidation left in the crevices of the stamping,so there is nice contrast between the dark, with the higher polished sterling.They are connected on the backside of the pendant & strung on sterling chain & 'crimped' off. The closure is a hook & eye.
