Tonopah Turquoise Mini Naja Necklace
Vibrant blues pop from the Tonopah Turquoise in this mini Naja necklace. A spectacularly eye catching statement necklace.
The bottoms of the crescent are made from fine silver which has been hammered with a one of a kind design stamp exclusive to my work.
The Naja measures 1-1/2 inches tall. The chain is patterned, lightly oxidized sterling silver. It can be worn at 18 inches long or with the included extender chain up to 20 inches long (plus the length of the Naja). Two little Campitos Turquoise beads decorate the end of the extender so you will have a little ‘back bling’ too!
A sterling silver heart lobster clasp makes securing the chain easy.
History of the Naja:
The Naja is a very old symbol for luck or to ward off the evil eye. The Spanish Moors would put the symbol on their horses and camels a thousand years ago. They taught Mexicans how to metalsmith who taught the Navajo. The Navajo named the crescent symbol the Naja and have incorporated this design into their jewelry, an ancient symbol for luck passed and shared between many cultures.
Your necklace will be shipped in an anti-tarnish bag within a Kraft gift box. A fair trade silk sari ribbon will be wrapped around it, ready for gift giving.
