Native American Jewelry: NA050

 

NAVAJO MOSAIC MINIATURE ( Native American Navajo Indian Pin / Pendant ): Set with small mosaic pieces, this Sterling Silver pin/pendant is designed in the shape of a “Yei”, a Navajo holy person. The stylized Yei has become a motif often used in contemporary jewelry. The feathered head is hinged to the lower body so that the body can swing freely. The pattern is comprised of colorful inlaid pieces of Lapis, Turquoise, Coral, Onyx and Quartz. The tiny “dot” mouth is silver. Marked “Sterling”. This Yei has been in my personal collection for over 30 years. I prefer it on a neck wire or chain, but the pin back has a secure safety clasp. Lively and fun, it looks nice suspended along with beads as an accent piece.
 
Condition: Very Good. A tiny ding near the mouth and a scratch on the Lapis body part. Size: Length from feather to end of body 2 5/8”. Width of head 3/4”.
