Navajo made Sterling silver and top shelf Kingman turquoise pin brooch pendant. FABULOUS silverwork with deep blue, choice Kingman turquoise cabochon. This can be used as a brooch/pin or bead/necklace enhancer.
Many of the pendants I've seen made by Rick have a very small hook so you can add a large bail of your choosing and use on a large strand of beads or? The large bail included is NOT made by Rick. It's one I bought for it.
It's not a perfect match as you can see. Navajo silversmith Rick Martinez is well known for making high-end jewelry.
It's easy to see why his work is so desirable. He uses premium Turquoise stones and often "antiques" and uses a satin like finish like you see in this piece. He uses a variety of techniques such as hand stamped cutouts and twisted wire. Rick's work uses some of the same techniques as his late cousin, Kirk Smith, a true master Navajo silversmith.I have a few other GENUINE Zuni and Navajo items listed. I package very well and use gift boxes so your items arrive safe. Please do not ask me to write gift on international orders.
