DESCRIPTION

This lovely pendant will definitely attract plenty of attention! This piece of Native American jewelry is Navajo hand crafted by artist Bea Tom, out of genuine sterling silver and real Turquoise stones. A total of SEVENTEEN stones are carefully set in hand cut bezel, while hand cut patterns can be seen creating a stunning kokopelli design. Mini silver beads accent for a beautiful finish. 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 by the artist.


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.
