This pendent is Navajo Handmade with KINGMAN Turquoise from Arizona. All our items are Native handmade on the Navajo Nation. Shadowboxing is one of the oldest styles of silversmithing. It takes three layers of silver to create the shadow detail inside pendent. In this piece we take an old style of silversmithing and create a brand new design. The heart design is highlighted with a turquoise stone and hand cut outline of a river of life. The river of life increases rejuvenation and helps with moving forward. The sturdy sterling silver all comes together to form a beautiful pendant with style and comfort. We use only heavy gauges of silver creating a sturdy time lasting piece. All our items include incredible details and are always unique and different every time. We do not mass produce any of our work.
As well, Arizona carries the highest quality turquoise in the entire world. Arizona is a copper state. Copper is what turns the turquoise a bright blue. The brightest blue turquoise comes from the Navajo Nation and is often referred to as "Navajo Turquoise". This particular stones comes from the Kingman Arizona mine. Furthermore, the closer you get to Nevada the greener the stone turns. Nevada is an iron state. Turning the turquoise a greener shade. Lastly, all our stones are hand cut, shaped and polished on the Navajo Nation. There is no better Quality. Navajo Turquoise increases wealth and good fortune. Not wealth with money but with your family and community.
In olden stories they say, Navajos, are the holy people. We are not silversmiths but messengers and crafters of the gods. When creating jewelry our bodies are taken over by different spirits and ancestors. We are simply transferring energy from higher powers. They go on to say if you see a piece and feel as if you recognize it, it speaks to you. This is because it was made for you by someone you once knew. Always walk in beauty. Ahe'hee (Thank you).
