Sterling silver pendant with Deming picture jasper and sandstone inlay
Amelia Joe-Chandler combines traditional cultural elements with a contemporary sense of design. She does not use any polish on her silver; as a result, the matte finish of her work is very distinctive and the artist’s hand is evident in every piece.
Sterling silver pendant with a spectacular picture jasper cabochon from Deming, New Mexico. This is one of a series of pendants by Joe-Chandler with stone from this area. The cabochons display a phenomenal desert landscape and sky.
This pendant depicts female rain over a mesa in sandstone inlay on the reverse side, with yucca plant in the foreground. This inlay reflects the scene in the cabochon as well.
1 7/8″ h x 1 3/8″ w; 19″ chain
Each of Amelia Joe-Chandler’s pieces comes with an illustrated card that describes the materials and the story depicted.
