Description
 

Joe Higenio Quintana (1915-1991) is considered by many to be one of the true master silversmiths of the 20th century. Learning metal work during WWII, after the war he returned to his home in the Cochiti Pueblo and began his career in jewelry making. He apprenticed with well-known jeweler Frank Patania and worked in a number of shops in both Santa Fe and Albuquerque NM.

This beautiful shadowbox design features a single high grade, Manassa turquoise stone. His beautiful hand crafted beads add the final touch to this lovely necklace. The perfect size for either a man or woman. A satin polish graces the entire piece with a heavy silver weight of both the beads and pendant. The pendant measures 2 3/16" long x 1 3/16" wide. The handcrafted beads are 26" long. Hallmarked with J H Q with his early thin H.
