This Maiden Pendant from the unique Petroglyph Collection is designed and handmade by famous Navajo/Zuni Silversmith, Alex Sanchez. Alex is an award winning, third generation silversmith, from the Navajo (Water Edge Clan) and Zuni Clan. Petroglyph designs, such as animal, human and spirit symbols are the cornerstone of his work. They are created with heavy gauge silver, reflecting contemporary and traditional totemic designs, and with the highest quality turquoise available.
His works have been presented at The Santa Fe Indian Market, the Eiteljorg Museum, and the Heard Museum. He has received awards from the Red Earth Show in Oklahoma, The Gallup Ceremonial, and Navajo Nation Fair. Alex Sanchez is the younger brother of Myron Panteah and Brad Panteah, who taught him the craft.
This gorgeous Sterling Silver Maiden Pendant is 4 1/4″ long, including the bezel, and 2 3/4″ wide and has beautiful stamping on the back. It is signed by Alex also on the back.
