If you are looking for elegance and beauty, you have found it! This piece of Native American jewelry is Navajo overlay hand crafted by artist Alonzo Mariano, out of genuine sterling silver and a real Turquoise stone. Along with that, it is hand strung, bead by bead, out of real Onyx beads, and real Turquoise beads. The necklace consists of: 3-mm silver round beads, 8-mm Turquoise Rondelle beads, 8-mm Onyx round beads, 8-mm silver round beads. Each end of the necklace is highlighted with a silver bead and cone for a gorgeous finish. The cones are stamped sterling.
The Turquoise stone is gently set, while being accented by twisted silver, stamped patterns, and overlay designs. Overlay is a process that utilizes at least two layers of sterling silver. One layer forms the foundation, while the second is used to design the individual detailed overlay. In this pendant, the second layer forms a beautiful Dragonfly design. Dragonflies are connected with water springtime, fertility, renewal, and are considered a messenger. The pendant is stamped sterling and hallmarked by the artist.
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.
Onyx is known to be a calming stone. It collects negative energy from you.
