With Mother's Day just around the corner, I have some ideas to help you choose something special for your Mother, your Mother in Law, your Grandmother or even your Wife !!

Grandmother Pin

The Grandmother Pin (also known as a Mother Pin or a Cluster Pin) is a stone cluster pin (or pin-pendant) made by a Navajo or Zuni artist. It is meant to symbolize the matriarch of the family at the center with the family members and their families radiating outward. Traditionally a cluster pin is made of turquoise, but occasionally we will see an all coral or other stone cluster pin.
See our Pin and our Pin Pendants for ideas.

The Quandelacy family of the Zuni pueblo has a tradition called the Grandmother Necklace which is a fetish necklace made of birds and animals - one animal carved by each member of the family and presented to Grandmother or Mother. See our Fetish Necklaces for ideas.

Sterling Silver Navajo RingsMother of Pearl - Just because of its name, Mother of Pearl items make great Mother's Day gifts. It is a very popular stone, actually shell, with Zuni and Navajo silversmiths. We have some very nice items in our pawn shop, pendants, pin-pendants, and bracelets.

On the back of a pin-pendant there is a locking pin as well as a pendant hanger. The hanger might be a loop or a Shepherd's Hook. This way the piece can be used as a pin or a pendant. See pin pendants.

About Jewelry Silver

Petit Point or Needle Point?

Wearing a Pendant

Mother of Pearl is a clear white translucent shell, sometimes has a little striation. MOP is the common name for iridescent nacre, a blend of minerals that are secreted by oysters, abalone, and other mollusks and deposited inside their shells, coating and protecting their bodies from parasites and foreign objects. Mother-of-Pearl is said to stimulate intuition, sensitivity, imagination, and adaptability and help with clarity in decision making. Mother of Pearl stirs and awakens the primordial memory of your origin in the infinite ocean of divine love and stirs this memory in every cell of your physical body thereby producing an overall calming effect as it gently stirs the life energy of your cells. Like waves lapping the shore, this stirring is steady, relaxing, and rhythmical.
