THE STORY BEHIND THE JEWELRY

MATERIALS:

Sterling silver and real Turquoise. 


MEASUREMENTS

Hair barrette measures approximately 1/2" long and 2-1/2" at widest point. 

DESCRIPTION:

This is a wonderful piece of Navajo artistry! This piece of Native American jewelry is Navajo hand crafted by artist Virginia John, out of genuine sterling silver and real Turquoise stones. This hair barrette has a total of FOUR stones that are gently set in hand cut shadow box bezel settings, while placed in marvelous bear paw designs. Hand cut bear paw patterns add style and complete the barrette perfectly. In Native American beliefs, the bear paw is usually considered a way to call for the power of the animal spirit, or as an indication of the presence of the spirit. It is a symbol that represents inner strength. For extra strength and durability certain parts of the hair barrette are made out of nickel!

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.
