Andy Cadman, Beautiful Silver with Turquoise Mountain Necklace
Navajo silversmith Andy Cadman can make just about anything with silver. However, the best thing he might make is sterling silver beads. If you know Andy you definitely wouldn’t want to meet him in a dark alley, he has a very intimidating build. It might be that bulk that just won’t let him mess around with little silver, because his beads are some of the heaviest you will ever find. This necklace is absolutely magnificent. The bottom displays a gorgeous piece of Turquoise Mountain that is filled with an aqua color that has highlighting copper colored matrix all over. Antique brushed silver beads display alternating blossom stamped cutouts and najas, a stunning combination. Great necklaces are like anything else great, they just don’t come around everyday. You might never take this one off once you see how beautiful it is on. Like all of Andy’s handmade silver and stone this Southwest lifestyle piece looks just as good with a pair of jeans as it does with a velveteen dress.
