Sterling SunFace Kachina with Kingman Turquoise Pendant by Native American Navajo Jewelry Artisan and Silversmith Freddy Charley NAP-1533BDS. Gorgeous and very detailed Arizona Kingman Turquoise pendant which we trust our images have captured for your consideration. This is a one-piece fixed pendant with flexible bail complimented by our own 21 Inch Kingman Turquoise 5mm Rondelle Bead Necklace accented with Navajo made Sterling seamed Beads typically found in Squash Blossom designs. Beads used for this Necklace are from our 'Old Kingman Turquoise' Collection mined in the late 1990's to early 2000's which is a color distinct to the rough during this time frame of mining operation blending perfectly with the Pendant. Necklace has an inside circumference of 21 1/2 Inch and lying flat end to end is 22 Inch finished with Sterling Lobster Clasp.
Let's start with the Bail which is 5/16 inch wide at the top and tapers to a ring connecting the SunFace. The Headdress and SunFace are extremely detailed with the face being hollow with open eyes. Cut feather adorn the head with a headdress of stamped feathers fanning it. This exquisite Sterling Silver work of Art adorns an equally beautiful Arizona Kingman Turquoise stone that measures approximately 7/8 inch by 5/8 inch at widest point (stone itself not including the setting). The Kingman Turquoise stone specimen is stunning with medium against deep blue coloring and spattering of matrix set in straight bezel with twisted wire rope accents and cultural symbolic cuts in the thick Sterling base.
A must for any Collection with each creation individually unique. Native American Indian Navajo Silversmith Freddy Charley.
