This astounding 4-strand necklace was fashioned by Rodney Coriz to showcase the Naja of sterling silver. A Naja is a good luck charm to ward off the evil eye. A large bale of silver suspends this ceremonial emblem of silver and Royston turquoise. A minute dot of coral has been placed with precision on the turquoise to add texture and dimension. Rodney has grown and developed into a world class artist who has shown works at many museums, including the Heard and The Millicent Rogers Museum. Rodney Coriz is also featured in the book "Masters of Contemporary Indian Jewelry". His jewelry is planned from beginning to end before even one stone is cut. Rodney knows where each stone will be placed using his excellent sense of color and design. The silver blossoms embellishing this necklace are strategically placed among stones (some of carved animal shapes) of turquoise, spiny oyster, lapis, jet, coral, and mother of pearl. The length of the necklace is 22" and the Naja measures 5". All Native American jewelry is accompanied by a Certificate of Authenticity.
