So I’m going to post this pin/pendant that I inherited from my mother so that I can put off a little longer going outside to work in the yard before it gets dark.
I don’t know much about it, except that I’m pretty sure it’s Native American, because she would have bought it on one of our trips West together, and she bought only Native American jewelry. I suspect she bought it at the Hopi House at Grand Canyon, but I don’t know whether it was in '82 or '69. I was wondering if any of you experts on here would have an idea of when it could have been made - whether that would be the 60s or later since I can’t remember when she said she bought it. I just know that it has always looked like this, never shiny and new looking. And I believe the turquoise has changed a bit over time. Also, would anyone have any idea of where the turquoise could possibly be from?
It’s been one of my favorite pieces for so long; even if it’s not super well made, I still love it. I generally wear it vertically on a leather cord so that I can tie it like a choker. Sometimes I put it on a thin strand of heishi. I’ve had numerous comments on it when I travel out in the four corners area. Thanks in advance!
