Calvin Martinez and Pete & Dinah Gasper – Hand Pendant
Zuni carvers Pete & Dinah Gasper made some incredible pieces, award-winning pieces. Perry had this in his collection and it is a great carving. The stone is Turquoise Mountain and has shades of blue with hints of matrix flowing through it. They have inlaid the hand with a coral cuff and ring, a nice and fun finish. You will find the hand used in art and always seems to be part of petroglyphs here in the Southwest. Navajo silversmith Calvin Martinez has simply surrounded the hand with bezel and dropped it form an appropriate sized wire bail. Hang this beautifully from leather or silver.
