Joel Pajarito Dragonfly Pendant

Sterling silver Tufa cast open pendant of a turquoise-headed figure adorned with two dragonflies. Back is stamped with “JOEL 23.” Tufa is a compressed volcanic ash material. When casting, the artist hand-carves a design into tufa stone – creating a negative space for molten metal to be poured. The use of tufa creates a beautiful, earthy pebble like texture on the silver. 

Joel Pajarito, born in 1984 in Kewa Pueblo (Santo Domingo Pueblo) followed in his grandmother, Mary Lovato’s, and father, Anthony Lovato’s, footsteps. He creates stunning sterling silver Tufa Cast jewelry and ornate inlaid stone work.

Measures 2.5” by 0.75”.
