Vintage Joan Slifka Sterling Silver, Turquoise and Pearl Cross Pendant Necklace 2-Sided #c912 c826
This gorgeous pendant was created by southwestern jewelry artist, Joan Slifka of Albuquerque, NM. Slifka has been making unique southwestern silver jewelry since the 1960s and began Joan Slifka Designs in the 1980s. The pieces are designed by Slifka and signed with her signature. Many of her pieces are one of a kind and are rare and quite collectible.

This lovely Slifka pendant is comprised of fine sterling silver, turquoise and pearls. The pendant is cross-shaped and double-sided. One side of the cross features a sunray stamped silver base with a raised, bezel-set turquoise stone in the center and four bezel-set, gray-white pearls on each arm of the cross. The reverse side of the pendant features beautiful engraved designs and has a three-dimensional figure of cupid with a bow and arrow in the center. I have added this pendant to a vintage Italian sterling silver rope chain that complements it beautifully. It's such a fantastic and versatile piece!

The pendant measures about 1 3/4 inches long and 1 1/2 inches wide. It is signed and hallmarked "Joan Slifka Designs .925" in script by Slifka on the bottom of the cupid side of the pendant. The chain measures approximately 24 inches long. It is signed and hallmarked "925 Italy" on the end caps and "925" on the clasp. There is a maker's mark on the other side of the end caps, but I could not make it out. The combined weight of the set is 21.8 grams.

This is a superb piece of southwestern silver artistry by an extremely talented silversmith! The option to wear the necklace in two ways is sure to add versatility to your jewelry collection. The pendant and chain are in excellent vintage condition and ready to wear!
