This rare sterling silver turquoise flower pendant was hand crafted by important Native American Navajo silversmith Glen Adakai. A beautiful quality piece which includes a genuine natural blue polished turquoise stone carefully placed in a hand cut bezel setting. Accenting the stone are hand carved silver leaves, raindrops, coils and twisted silver. The center stone measures 1/2'' x 3/8'' the width of the pendant measures 1-1/8" and 1-3/4'' high. Signed G.A. with arrow symbol for Glen Adakai on the back. In excellent, pre- owned condition, with normal light wear to the back. There is a separation to the edge of one of the flowers as seen in the last photograph which is ''in the making'' and does not deter from this beautiful piece. Cir. Mid Century.
