This is a pure tribal piece. With a strong feel of yesterday and so much pride.. It was made by the very talented CHAVEZ family. This NAVAJO family has been making jewelry for generations and generations. Gloria Chavez, the matriarchal figure of the family, has been maintaining the high quality of work all throughout the years. Her sons, with Gloria’s eagles eyes, make incredible jewelry, traditional pieces with a unique creative style. Their jewelry is INIMITABLE. This necklace has something almost primitive. It seems all the strength builds up in the turquoise to emanate in brut power. The force of the turquoise and the sterling silver concentrate together around the arrow to form a shield of protection.. It is a wonderful choker style necklace with big stones. The stone at the bottom is 2 long.. Each turquoise is a variation around a brilliant blue with green in undertone. The matrix goes from the lightest breeze in the bottom turquoise to the most dark violent storm in the stones on the left. The combination is very dramatic… The choker part completes the pendant perfectly with its thick tube, in several parts. It is a substantial piece, 5mm diameter with a primitive feel as well. It is 18 all around, articulated on each side. The sterling silver has its original lovely patina. The pendant part is 4.5 long. It is 3 wide. SIGNED by the artists the CHAVEZ family, C.
