This is a huge beautiful handcrafted sterling silver barrette.
Its was created by Navajo artist Tim Yazzie. It features
repousse work, which is a decorative technique of raising a pattern
on the silver. There is a small red stone in the middle - can't tell exactly what it is.
A perfect southwest hair accessory.
It measures 1 3/4" tall by a slightly rounded, about 4" wide.
weight: 29.4 grams on my scale.
I placed a quarter there for scale.
Sure to make a Fine addition to any collection, or a great gift!
