Up for your consideration is this top quality brand new Native American ~ Navajo ~ handcrafted sterling silver and genuine Sleeping Beauty turquoise Kachina necklace. Doris does not make these kachina necklaces very often, so they are becoming more and more difficult to obtain. You might never see another like this one, so do not miss the opportunity to own a very special piece of Navajo one-of-a-kind wearable art.
The necklace is double stranded with handmade silver beads and 9 hand made kachinas. Each Kachina has been decorated with rattles, feathers, traditional dress, turquoise eyes, and a stunning turquoise headdress. The natural Sleeping Beauty turquoise stones are a bright turquoise color, with black and silver matrix and are well-matched in color. The center kachina is 3 inches long while the kachinas on the sides are about 2-3/8 inches long.
* 26 inches long from hook-end to eye-end
* 14-1/2 inches hang from the neck to bottom of center kachina
* Center Kachina: 3 inches long
* Side Kachinas: 2-3/8 inches long
