Description

This piece of Native American jewelry is Navajo sterling silver and Turquoise stone pendant hand crafted by artist Marie Baho.

Navajo Indians are the largest Native American Tribe federally recognized in the United States. The Navajo are famous for visual arts, such as jewelry. After the 1900s the Navajo silversmiths began to create Native American Indian Jewelry. Soon after, the silversmiths introduced turquoise into their jewelry making process. This process made Navajo jewelry pieces much more sought after by jewelry collectors. The primary source of silver for jewelry was American coins until about 1890. The American coins then got substituted for Mexican pesos in 1930.

Turquoise is the birthstone of December. It is believed that turquoise tends to bring good fortune, strength and helps overcome illness. Turquoise got its name from the Levantine traders called Turks who brought the stone to Europe from Persia via Turkey centuries ago. Native Americans have prized turquoise since the time of the Aztecs, who mined it in New Mexico. The natural variations that occur in turquoise are part of their appeal and beauty.

Measurements:
width 3,9cm (1,53")
height 3cm (1,18")
stone 2cm (0,78") by 2cm (0,78")
