Traditional Sandcast Spiny Shell Naja Pendant
The large traditional, crescent-shaped Naja pendant has been borrowed from the Moorish culture. Like a horseshoe, it symbolizes good luck. It is always found at the bottom of the classic squash blossom necklace. Navajo artist, B. Yazzie, made this large Naja pendant by carving the design in sandstone and pouring molten sterling silver into the mold.
Deep red-orange spiny shell is beautifully set within the oxidized silver. Finished off with Navajo hand stamping on both the Naja and the bail which is the perfect size for larger oxidized sterling silver beads.
This large and stunning Naja pendant has a vintage look. It is an iconic piece of Native American jewelry. Handmade in New Mexico by a Navajo artisan. Sterling bead necklace is not included.
