THE STORY BEHIND THE JEWELRY

MATERIALS:

Sterling silver, real Turquoise, and Jet.

MEASUREMENTS:

Pin pendant measures approximately 1-3/4" long and 7/8" at widest point.

DESCRIPTION:

Looking at such beauty tells the capabilities of Native American art! This piece of Native American jewelry is navajo hand crafted by artist J. Martinez, out of genuine sterling silver, along with real Turquoise and Jet inlay. The inlay is carefully set, while hand crafted silver can be seen creating a fascinating Kokopelli design for an elegant 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 pin 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.
