There is nothing at all average about this beautiful keychain! This piece of Native American jewelry is Zuni hand crafted by artist Lorrenda Bobelu, out of genuine sterling silver, along with real Turquoise and Mother of Pearl inlay. The inlay is delicately set, while thin silver lines can be seen highlighting in between for a gorgeous finish. For extra strength and durability, certain parts of the key ring are made out of nickel.
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 its appeal and beauty.
