Wow, take a look at this incredible necklace! Where do I even begin with this piece? This is a brilliant Aztec-styled necklace from David Rosales, one of the most talented Native American jewelry designers in the United States. His work is always impressive but now and then we get our hands on something that is truly astonishing. Let's dive in and discuss this beautiful necklace.
David Rosales is known for his different color collections that any of his Native American jewelry can be made with. You are looking at Blue Sky, a newer collection consisting of Lapis Lazuli, Denim Lapis, and cultured opal. These colors have been quite popular because of how bright they make the jewelry. You have the dark blue Lapis that is brightened by the sparkly opal. The Denim Lapis is the middle ground that gives this an extra added dimension. Do you see how tiny and precise the cuts are in the inlaid stones? All of that work is done entirely by hand, using saws and grinding wheels. There is an enormous amount of work that goes into making something like this, especially with such tiny, detailed cuts. It really is amazing how much artistry can be found in Native American jewelry.
The overall style of this necklace is akin to Aztez art or architecture. It has sharp jagged lines that are unusual for a necklace. The bottom portion resembles a sun and each point has a small inlaid cultured opal. This styling is certainly outside what you typically see in Native American jewelry. I think that is a testament to the creativity and artistic ability of David Rosales. Like any true artist, David refuses to work within a set of predefined boundaries. He constantly pushes Native American jewelry to the edge and you and I are the lucky beneficiaries of his creative genius.
With the solid sterling silver snake chain, this necklace is 15" in length. It has an extension on the end of up to 4" extra, for a max total length of 19".
