on Oct 27, 2016 in archived


Signed large Bernard Dawahoya silver necklace its rectangular pendant featuring figural overlay with the background showing the hand-chasing characteristic of the Hopi silversmith’s work, as I understand it. The long, generous, hand-wrought chain is the set’s original. Exceptionally beautiful, bearing the signature of one of the most important Hopi silversmiths and teachers…
