This pendant is a Navajo classic! This piece of Native American jewelry is Navajo hand crafted by artist Henry Attakai, out of genuine sterling silver and a real Turquoise stone. The stone is carefully set in a hand cut bezel setting, while hand crafted silver work creates a gorgeous Wolf and arrow design. Silver beads, scalloped leaf designs, and a silver feather can be seen accenting the pendant for an outstanding finish. Feathers are symbols of prayers, marks of honor or sources of ideas. They represent the Creative Force. Arrows usually signify direction of travel, force, and movement. 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.
