Kirk Smith – Purple Sugilite Cluster Pend – BIG Silver
Navajo artist Kirk Smith got his hands on some great purple sugilite. The stone is filled with a deep grape color with hints of black streaking through it. He used six pieces to make this fabulous cluster pendant. The purple is surrounded by filed bezel, twisted wire, silver drops, and stamped cutouts. Plus, the large bail will allow you to wear this one with almost any style necklace you can imagine. Kirk has been making quality handmade silver and stone for decades. Make sure you read the artist interview with Kirk we have on the online Trading Post. This talented artist has changed his style over the years, but remained true to the traditional heavy silver work of the Navajo. We have a large selection of his work online, and even have things you could turn into a magnificent set of wearable art. Kirk is known for his great cluster work, and that has led to being able to do most of his lapidary work which gives him his signature look.
