Looking at such beauty tells the capabilities of Native American art! This piece of Native American jewelry is Navajo, hand crafted by artist Lorraine Chee out of genuine sterling silver and a real Turquoise stone. ONE stone is carefully placed in a hand cut bezel setting on a beautiful Tomahawk design while hand cut silverwork can be seen accenting the pendant for a fabulous look!
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.
