This dramatic choker necklace of sterling silver and applied copper has a Southwest feel, combining both Mexican and Native American design elements. The individual angular panels feature applied wires formed as spirals with silver beads at the end; the dangling curved panels bear applied fan-like copper designs. The necklace is completely handmade, down to the bands connecting each panel and the rings that suspend each pendant. The surfaces are highly oxidized, and the degree of cleaning will depend on the aesthetics preferred by the new owner. Regardless, it's truly a piece of wearable art and few of its kind probably exist. Dating could be anywhere from the 1930s to the early 1950s, and it is marked only sterling on the back of one pendant. The necklace has a total length of approximately 16 1/4 inches; the width is about 3/4 inch. Weight: 59.4 grams
