Extra large vintage 70's Navajo seventy two (72) piece turquoise satellite cluster brooch/pin. The brooch is 3" in diameter which are getting very hard to find. The artist has used a single circular cut turquoise stone in center wrapped with twisted wire and decorated with four (4) crescent moon wires and four (4) silver raindrops.The first inner satellite cluster consists of thirteen (13) pettitpoint stone, the next cluster consists of twenty five (25) turquoise snake eyes. The third satellite consists of fourteen (14) crescent moon wires with silver raindrops between each one. The final outer rim satellite cluster consists of thirty three (33) pettitpoint stone each separated with a larger silver drop. The artist has circled twisted wire to separate each satellite cluster, set each stone in very fine hand cut serrated bezels, and mounted everything to a scorched blackened silver base. The artist finishes by attaching a 2 3/8" long safety locking pin and clasp on the back.

The extra large brooch measures 3" diameter with a total of seventy two (72) hand cut turquoise stones. It weighs 40.9 grams (1.44 ounces or 1.31 troy ounces) and is stamped what I believe is J.M. BEGAY. Guaranteed sterling silver. These cluster brooches 3" diameter or larger are becoming very collectable pieces! $359.95
