This eye-catching Necklace showcases a 44-Stone Turquoise and Sterling Silver Naja Pendant by Santa Fe artist Dan Dodson. A Naja is a crescent-shaped piece found in Southwestern Jewelry, including Native American squash blossom Necklaces. This Naja features 44 individually-set Turquoise stones, including teardrops, rounds and a center rectangle. All 44 pieces are color-matched, creating an impressive presentation. The Turquoise is set in raised Sterling Silver Bezels and ornamented with Twisted Sterling Silver Wire and 25 handcrafted Sterling Silver Balls. The background of the piece has been oxidized, providing an attractive contrast to the polished Sterling elements. The design is back by Sterling Silver Plate that has been shaped to mirror the outline of the stones. The Pendant has a back Bail formed with a Sterling Silver Hook. It is stamped on the back with the artist's hallmark and "Sterling." This is a beautiful piece with great character.

We've paired The Turquoise Naja Pendant with 3 strands of 6mm Turquoise Heishi. The Heishi displays a variety of turquoise hues — from light green to a rich blue green — blending beautifully with the Pendant stones. The Heishi has traces of golden brown matrix, adding color depth. The Turquoise is complemented by 3-and-4mm translucent gray Fire Polished Glass, which is faceted and gives off a subtle sparkle. The stones are highlighted by Sterling Silver Beads, with 14.5mm Discs and 8mm Rounds providing a transition from the Pendant to the Necklace strands. The Heishi is further decorated with 6mm Sterling Silver Rounds and 5mm Rondelles, adding shine and design interest. At the top of the Necklace the 3 Strands of Turquoise Heishi transition to 3 strands of Fire Polished Glass, streamlining the silhouette and ensuring a comfortable fit. The Necklace is finished with a Sterling Silver Toggle Clasp and adorned with a Southwest Designs Sterling Charm. The piece weighs 105 grams and is 20-1/2 inches long plus the Naja Pendant, which is 2-3/4 inches by 2-1/8 inches (when wearing, a vertical length of about 10 inches).
