NEW!  Bold, well made Navajo turquoise hollow silver turtle pendant! The pendant displays a hollow yet very solid rendition of a turtle with a round cut and polished blue-green turquoise nugget with brown matrix from the Pilot Mountain Mine mounted on the turtle's shell. The stone is set into a smooth silver bezel with the circular hollow turtle shell displaying a rolling multiple pedal daisy flower. The artist attaches four (4) sturdy rectangular silver pieces for the legs, a small bump out for the turtle's tail, and a large silver drop for the head. He has included two (2) eyes and mouth for the turtle which appears to be biting down on the jump ring that holds the bale.

The artist finishes by attaching a hand made sterling bale (5/16" by 1/4" across opening). The turtle measures approximately 1 1/4" by 1 3/16" across and including the bale is 2" tall. It weighs a nice 13.1 grams and is hallmarked NM - Leaf - STERLING by Navajo artist Nelson Morgan. Nelson makes the detailed kachina pendants and earrings we carry. Guaranteed Sterling Silver.
