You will absolutely fall in love with this stunning necklace set! In this Native American jewelry set, the pendant is Navajo overlay hand crafted by artist Alonzo Mariano, out of genuine sterling silver and a real Turquoise stone. The necklace is hand strung out of genuine silver, along with real Turquoise and Onyx beads. The necklace consists of: 2-mm and 6-mm silver round beads, 4-mm Onyx round beads, along with 9-mm Turquoise flat beads. 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 water wave design, along with other traditonal patterns. The stone is delicately set in a hand cut bezel, while hand crafted silver work creates a marvelous Kokopelli design and a shadow box Sunface design. Twisted silver and imprinted patterns highlight the pendant for an excellent finish. The pendant is stamped sterling and hallmarked by the artist.
In Native American beliefs, the water waves design represents continuous life. 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 pendant is stamped sterling and hallmarked by the artist.
Onyx is known to be a calming stone. It collects negative energy from you.
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.
