On a recent trip to Arizona, the land of beautiful jewelry, my husband and I stopped by a small parking lot craft show. A quick sweep through the tented rows brought us to a table filled with Navajo silverwork. When I saw the sterling silver feather, made by the woman selling it, I knew it was meant to hang on a long sterling silver necklace.
The feather pendant is stamped by Navajo artists James and Mae Peshlakai, a couple from Arizona. It hangs on a Karen Hill Tribe Silver hammered ring. A raw quartz point, red jasper, and turquoise are wrapped in sterling silver wire to hang freely on this long double-chain necklace.
This handmade necklace is one of my absolute favorites and most-worn.
