Takala, Jason – Double Overlay Cloud Swirl Pedant with Bisbee Turquoise
Jason Takala has long been one of the most sought after Hopi jewelers creating the classic double overlay. Each piece is creatively designed and then cut out of sterling silver or gold and then soldered to the second piece of silver. This pendant is a new design for his work with interlocking swirls. There are cloud and rain designs cut into the silver. It is double overlay sterling silver with 14K gold small balls as part of the design. The bottom of the pendant has a single piece of Bisbee Turquoise. Note how the bale is also double overlay! Jason also made the hand-made Hopi link chain. The piece is stamped on the back
I’m am pleased to once again be working with Jason Takala. My parents worked with him for years at our store in Colorado in the 1980s-2000. His creative and distinctive jewelry, as well as his famous seedpots, are what have made him so famous. However, it is a great friendship and connection of almost 40 years that is an important part of having his work here in our galleries!
