Pendant necklace by Agness Seebass incorporating ancient and contemporary. The two green beads are ancient Mayan jade, probably used originally on a necklace some 1000 years ago. They blend perfectly with the modern hard edges of the square pendant. The pendant is 1 1/4" square.
This handsome, sterling and sodalite cuff bracelet can be worn equally well by a man or woman. Graduated size oval stones are framed by triangular bands of silver. Hammer marks on the inside are evidence that it is totally hand fabricated. It measures 1 1/4" wide; inside diameter is 2 1/2" with an opening 1 1/16". The size can be modified a bit, either larger or smaller.
