Massive Hopi Beaded Sterling Silver Necklace with Overlay Turquoise Pendant

A rare find! This is a Hopi piece. It has a small Hopi hallmark on the back of the pendant, but it is double stamped and I cannot verify whose mark it is. 

The necklace is constructed with three rows of hand soldered sterling silver "hogan" beads that measure 6.3 mm in diameter. Each side has three handsome bars that keep the beads in a line. 

The pendant is outstanding and was constructed with an overlay technique that is soldered at the edges and raised into a shadowbox of sorts. A combination of two techniques. The pendant is set with two large turquoise stones, natural that have the attributes of the Cerrillos Mine. The pendant measure 3 3/4" long by 2 1/2" wide. It weighs 6.3 ounces. Great condition with minimal tarnish. Unisex.
