    • Unisex One of a Kind piece
Navajo pendant. Double Naja pendant in mat silver with ends in hand shape. 
This pendant is made with the Tufa Cast technique, one of the oldest processes used by the Navajos:
The artist takes a mold made of volcanic stone (tufa) and divises it in two parts. In the first part, he carves a design of his choice, melts silver in, and tightly covers it with the second part of the mold. Once the silver is hard, the mold eventually breaks, making this piece a unique item. This technique creates a jewel of traditionnal rough aspect on which we can clearly see the beautiful lumps of tufa stone. 
The Naja pendant reminds the horse shoe shape and is on many Navajo necklaces as a talisman for protection. 
Dimensions (H x l) in inches: 2,3 x 2,1
This pendant is made in sterling silver.
