Pendant measures approximately 3-1/2" long (including bail) and 1-3/8" at widest point.
This is a very exquisite pendant that must not be overlooked! This piece of Native American jewelry is Hopi overlay hand crafted by artist George Phillips out of genuine sterling silver. Overlay is a process that utilizes at least two layers of sterling silver. One layer forms the foundation, while the second layer is used to design the individual detailed overlay. In this pendant, the second layer forms a magnificent Kokopelli, Sun, and Prayer Sticks designs for a wonderful look. In Native American beliefs, the sun is the provider of life, warmth, growth, and all that is good. The Kokopelli is a common fertility symbol throughout the Southwest. In Native American beliefs, the Kokopelli visits various communities, seducing and impregnating the young women drawn to the tones of his flute playing. The pendant is stamped sterling and hallmarked.
