Hallmarked Naja (modern?)

I believe this Naja might be modern, maybe that’s why I’m having trouble finding the artist. Very heavy, I believe the turquoise is Red Mountain. Any help about the maker or the age is appreciated.

Hallmark looks like J E with the “J” flipped on its side?

I don’t think of this as being a new piece. I believe that stone is a piece of Kingman sea foam turquoise. You might do some research on a Lorraine Johnson and see if you can come up with anything?

or an E J ? Not that I could find one like this…
