The design for this pendant, created by artist Joyce Ravenwood, came from an actual pictograph of a buffalo found in a cave in Texas. The ancient image of the buffalo is rendered in solid Sterling silver and embraces a 21mm x 11mm x 17mm Turquoise nugget. Turquoise is known as "the travele's stone" and is very appropriate for these wide ranging travelers of the past. The pendant measures 1 1/4" x 1 1/2".
Each of Joyce Ravenwood's creations is a unique, one of a kind piece of wearable art and each one is crafted by hand at her jeweler's bench. She lets each of the elements that she works with dictate her design decisions so that the natural beauty of each piece as well as the heart of the artist shines through the completed piece.
