DESCRIPTION:

This bracelet is a true treasure! This piece of Native American jewelry is Navajo overlay hand crafted by artist Genevieve Jones out of genuine sterling silver, 12 Karat Gold Filled, along with a real Turquoise stone. Overlay is a process that utilizes at least two layers of sterling silver or gold. One layer forms the foundation, while the second layer is used to design the individual detailed overlay. The stone is carefully placed in a hand cut bezel setting at the center of the bracelet while the second layer forms beautiful Kokopelli designs and other stamped patterns completing the bracelet beautifully! he 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 bracelet is stamped sterling, 12 KGF, and is 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 their appeal and beauty.

12KGF is as good as gold. The color will never fade, change, or wear off. It is 12K gold on top of brass and other metals, which create a gold tone with a finish all the way through. 12KGF behaves the same way as gold.
