This lovely sterling silver crucifix hosts a unique piece of Kingman turquoise in the center. Darryl Becenti has used a silversmithing technique called repousse to “bump out” raised designs from the reverse side of the piece. This style allows for elements of high relief interposed with refined stamp work.
