Large SunFace Kachina Sacred White Buffalo Turquoise two piece movable Pendant by Native American Navajo Silversmith Freddy Charley with complimentary Bead Necklace by Navajo Rena Ration (Mr. Charley's wife). Gorgeous and very detailed two piece White Turquoise pendant which we hope our images have captured for your consideration.
Let's start with the Bail which is 7/16 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, various stamping and open eyes. Cut feathers adorn the top of face with a headdress of stamped feathers fanning it. This portion of the Pendant has an overall length (excluding attachment rings) of 1 1/8 inch by 1 1/2 inch at widest point. This exquisite Sterling Silver work of Art adorns an equally beautiful handcut teardrop White Turquoise Pendant that has an overall length of 1 1/4 inch (excluding attachment ring) by 14/16 inch at widest point. The stone specimen is stunning with bold spattering of signature Black on White coloring deep set in straight bezel with twisted wire rope accents and ornate curves and cuts in the Sterling.
The Beaded Necklace is provided complimentary by the Artist and strung by his wife Navajo Rena Ration. 18 Inch Bead Necklace is made of 6mm Onyx Beads accented with Howlite (White Turquoise beads really non-existent) and Sterling accents with hook style closure.
