NEW! Large Navajo twenty six (26) stone turquoise cluster butterfly pendant. The silversmith hand cuts a resemblance of a butterfly from sheet silver. She uses two (2) flat smooth silver wires and outlines the bottom two (2) wing sections with one wire and the top two (2) sections with the other wire. The silversmith applies repeat sunrise stampwork across the top and sides of the top wings and across the bottom and sides of the bottom wing sections. She then encases inside the smooth wire each wing section with twisted wire. The top left and right wing sections each have eight (8) small turquoise nuggets all separated with silver drops with the bottom left and right section containing five (5) nuggets each also separated with silver drops. All nuggets are set into saw tooth bezels and mounted to a black oxidized base. The artist continues to detail the butterfly by adding hogan stamped buttons in the top corner of both left and right upper wing sections along with a stack of three (3) hogan buttons to resemble the butterflies body. She uses two (2) long twisted wires for antennae and attaches a smooth wire between the antennae to connect the decorative stamped silver bale.

The butterfly measures 2 3/8" by 2 5/8" across the top and 2" across the bottom. The bale opening is approximately 7/16" by 3/8" across. The pendant weighs a healthy 26.5 grams and is stamped STERLING and hand etched Tina J. - Navajo - 2015 by Navajo artist Tina Johnson. Very nice, well made, and detailed turquoise butterfly pendant!  $298.95
