Navajo silversmith has created a fascinating piece of storyteller art. The pedant was inspired by the many Navajo women who take care of their flocks of sheep everyday in the Four Corners area. Lester uses a combination of stones to give the woman a traditional Navajo outfit, and that even include classic blue turquoise and red coral. He uses tufa casting techniques to make the figure, and then adds wire to make the classic cotton wrapped hair bun. This will look wonderful hanging from a number of different style necklaces, maybe think about a set of turquoise beads.
