A desirable vintage James Avery sterling silver necklace pendant. Fashioned as a bunch of bluebonnets, the state flower of Texas, the pendant is beautifully sculptured with the high points polished and shadow work in the recesses and super quality as you would expect.
James Avery was a contemporary American artisan jeweller based in Texas who produced top quality silver and gold jewellery in sentimental meaningful designs. His pieces reflected the things that were important in people's lives and they have enjoyed a universal appeal with his retired pieces becoming particularly sought after and desirable. Each year bluebonnets bloom along Texas roadways and in fields during the spring and this pendant was created as an ode to their beauty.
The pendant has a closed jump ring bale and suspends from an elegant 18" (46cm) sterling silver rolo/belcher chain with a spring ring clasp. It would also work equally well as a large charm on a chunky silver bracelet.
