Begay - Navajo Sterling Silver
Paula says - "These sterling silver eagle bracelets were hand made and hand stamped by Navajo silversmith Fred Begay. Stamping of traditional designs is different on each bracelet and each has a unique turquoise stone set in a smooth bezel. The sterling silver has been lightly antiqued to give it an old time look."
TURQUOISE is associated with the sky, and bringing sky energy to earth. It is known as a master healer stone as it is believed to help speed the healing process. It is also thought that turquoise can help promote honest and clear communication from the heart.
Turquoise comes in all shades of blue, to blue-green and it is the natural variations in turquoise that make it appealing. The color of turquoise in American Indian jewelry ranges from brownish green to bright blue. Found in veins sandwiched in between layers of mother rock, turquoise can show some of the influence of the mother rock in its matrix or veining. The matrix colors range from blue to golden brown to black and sometimes with golden flecks. Many people prefer turquoise with matrix over clear stones. Read more about stones.
