One of a Kind piece
Navajo pendant. Naja in sterling silver made with the Tufa Cast technique.
The Naja reminds the shape of the horse shoe. It's an element we commonly find as a pendant on the traditional Squash Blossom necklaces. As a talisman, the Naja gives protection.
This designer piece is made in sterling silver, with the Tufa Cast technique, one of the oldest process 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.
Size (H x l in mm) including pendant ring: 29mm x 18mm
Proudly handmade in USA.
