Sterling Silver and real Turquoise.
Pendant measures approximately 2" long (including bail) and 1-3/8" at widest point.
We bring to you this adorable pendant! This piece of Native American jewelry is Navajo hand crafted, by artist Genevieve Francisco, out of genuine sterling silver and a real Turquoise stone. The stone is delicately set in a hand cut bezel setting, while hand crafted silver work creates an extraordinary Eagle design. Mini silver beads and TWO silver feathers can be seen accenting the pendant for a beautiful finish. In Native American beliefs, the eagle is the master of the sky; he is considered to be a carrier of prayers. Many of the Indian Nations admire the eagle for bravery and special connections to the creator. Feathers are symbols of prayers, marks of honor or sources of ideas. They represent the Creative Force. The pendant is stamped .925 (sterling) and hallmarked.
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.
