Navajo silversmith Melvin Francis and lapidary artist Eugene Chee have collaborated on many different art projects. One of the best things this duo makes is the inlay necklace, it is definitely the most unique. This necklace is a combination of inlay and saucer beads. Each inlay bead is filled with rich green cuts of Australian gaspeite, and that stone radiates against the mirror shined silver. Eugene puzzles together the gaspeite giving the beads a very consistent color. I have never seen another necklace like this, have you? If you have silver beads you know how wonderful and treasured they are, this is taking it a step further, enjoy.
