Santa Fe Artist BUDDY LEE Madagascar RUBIES & ONYX Modernist Thunderbird 925 Necklace with Hand Made Chain!

825.00 925.00

Buddy took a more abstract approach when designing this..With this necklace (& with each & every part of it),one thing doesn't take a back seat to the other.All play a major role in this very one of a kind, piece of art!

From the hand made chain,to the abstract~geometric & very modern Thunderbird,to the arrow that drops from the bird & that has the most beautiful Madagascar Rubies,to the rich black onyx!

Most of us know that Burmese Rubies are known to be the best in the world,but in recent years,rubies coming out of Madagascar Africa & Vietnam have considerably changed this situation,with fast & new geological discoveries..

 

The huge ruby at the top, sits in a hand made scalloped edge bezel & is a non-faceted Ruby cabochon. In the line of the arrow,are two

 4 mm (approximately 0.25 carats each) faceted red rubies that sit flush with the sterling.The rubies have a cut out backside so the light comes through.There are 3 geometric shaped black onyx that add to it's character.

The chain is completely made by hand & people don't realize the time,love,patience & work that goes into making one & it's something to be appreciated!! You just don't see this in jewelry,since everyone is taking the "quick,fast route" & using commercially made ones. It is a large link style & acts like an extender, since you can put the hook anywhere you want,to wear it higher up on the neck or lower.

One thing guaranteed is, you will be the only one with this,since no 2 pieces are alike!

Buddy is a collectible Santa Fe artist.
