And for those of you who like shiny Old Style pieces and prefer to have the piece age
naturally - this is it! This unique old style Rainbow Dancer Naja pendant was created
by Navajo artist Kevin Billah. There's deep stamp work on the piece and the bail.
The center turquoise stone is a sky blue.
It's marked sterling and signed K Billah
It measures 2 1/4" tall, plus the large 1/2" bail, by 2 1/4" at it's widest point.
Weight: 28.1 grams on my scale
I placed a quarter there for scale.
Sure to make a Fine addition to any collection, or a great gift!
The "naja" and the squash blossom bead was introduced to the Navajo by the Spanish and later adopted by the Zuni. The crescent shaped Naja is similar to the pendants that hung from the headstalls of the Spanish silver bridles in the late 1500s and early 1600s.
