An offer like this will not last long! This piece of Native American jewelry is Navajo hand crafted by artist Sharon McCarthy, out of genuine sterling silver and real Turquoise stones. A total of TWO stones (ONE in each earring) are carefully placed in hand cut bezel settings, while being accented with mini silver beads and stamped patterns. A silver feather dangles at the end of each earring for a beautiful finish. Feathers are symbols of prayers, marks of honor or sources of ideas. They represent the Creative Force. The earrings are 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.
