DESCRIPTION:

Excellent craftsmanship is shown throughout this amazing pendant! This piece of Native American jewelry is Zuni hand crafted by artist Gladys Lamy, out of genuine sterling silver ang real multicolor inlay. The inlay consists of: Turquoise, Coral, Jet, and Mother of Pearl. The inlay is delicately set, creating a fabulous Sun design and other traditional patterns. Twisted silver and hand cut silver work accent the pendant for an incredible finish. In Native American beliefs, the sun is the provider of life, warmth, growth, and all that is good. The pendant is stamped 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. 

Corals are known to be very soothing and very protective. Coral is of an organic origin; it is the skeletal remains of marine animals called Coral Polyps. Colonies of these tiny creatures build branching structures as they grow, gradually forming reefs and atolls.
