Sterling MC (Martha Cayatineto )
The traditional, sandcast, crescent shaped Naja pendant has been borrowed from the Moorish culture. Like a horseshoe, it symbolizes good luck. It is often found at the bottom of the classic squash blossom necklace. Navajo silversmith, Martha Cayatineto, created this piece by carving the shape into sandstone and pouring molten sterling silver into it. It was stamped with a Rain design and lightly oxidized for a vintage look.
Beautiful Royston Turquoise is bezel set and suspends from the center a sterling silver hook was added to the back which makes it easy to wear it on any size beads or chain.
