Jade pendant kawoq medallion good quality
This is a good high quality product that is very well made. Kudos to the seller for making this product.
I was finally able to purchase this piece when I received a discount code. The silver work and the carving are just amazing. I have no idea how someone would find the patience to do such intricate work. The stones and pearls are perfect accents. I have since purchased more pieces from this artist. Please check out his site. So happy to be supportive of this craftsmanship!
