ABOUT THIS PIECE…
These are Navajo Handmade, Sterling Silver, Hook Dangle Arrowhead Shaped Earrings Carved Out of Stabilized Turquoise.
Created by Artisan, Jeff Howe.
Stabilized Turquoise: Because Genuine Turquoise Stone is Very Soft, it is Usually Stabilized in one way or Another by Wax, Epoxy, Resin, Clear Sealers etc, So it Does not Scratch as Easy. This is Often Done at the Original Mine. Most Nugget and Heishi Products Now Available in North America are Made From Real Turquoise That Has Been Stabilized.
Each Earring Measures Approximately
1-1/2″ Long (Including Sterling Silver French Wire) by 1/8″ at Widest Point.
The Use of Turquoise, Shell, Jet and Coral as Personal Adornment by Southwestern Indians Dates From Pre-Historic Times and the Use of Silver by the Navajo, Zuni and Hopi is Almost 100 Years Old.
This is an Indian HANDMADE Product and Should NOT be Confused with Jewelry Imitations.
Where Used, all Stones are Genuine.
TIDBITS FOR MAGICAL THINKERS…
Turquoise is the Birthstone of December. It is Believed that Turquoise Tends to Bring Good Fortune, Strength, and Helps Overcome Illness. Turquoise Got it?s Name From the Levantine Traders Called Turks Who Brought the Stone to Europe From Persia Via Turkey Centuries Ago. Native Americans Have Prized Turquoise Since the Time of the Aztecs, Who Mined it in New Mexico. The Natural Variations That Appear in Turquoise are Part of Their Appeal and Beauty.
