Handcrafted Southwest Silver Concho Wall Crosses
These lovely concho crosses, created by Arizona artist Sandy Garrett, capture the artistic heritage of the Southwest.
Silver concho belts and concho-ornamented saddles have a long history in the Southwest. The name concho comes originally from the Spanish word concha, which means conch, or seashell, and it refers to discs of silver used to decorate saddles, belts, and bolo ties. The earliest conchos were silver dollars that were hammered, stamped and edged, and finally slotted and strung together on strips of leather.
The crosses in this collection carry on that tradition of the Southwest. The conchos are crafted of brass with a sterling silver plated finish, and mounted on a decorative wire frame. Each cross is accented with a colored bead at the center.
