Fresh from a Florida collection comes this large contemporary silver and turquoise pendant by Navajo silversmith Elle Curley-Jackson.

Elle Curley-Jackson's handmade pendant is not only beautiful and substantial with it's dangling feathers, but it honors the four directions, sacred to Dine' people. Each direction has special meaning and corresponds to a sacred mountain and other important associations.

The Great Divine or Big Star is found in East Direction (Ha’a’aah) associated with early dawn and spring. This is the direction responsible for thinking, especially positive thoughts. To the South Direction lies the Pleiades star cluster along with daytime and summertime. South is the direction of planning. West Direction (E’e’aah) holds Cluster of Stars, Many Stars and the Milk Way. West is the direction evening twilight, fall and life. Finally, North Direction points to the Horned Star, nighttime and wintertime. It's a direction where life is evaluated and changes can be made for the better.

While the four directions as symbolized in this pendant are significant elements of Navajo culture, wear this pendant to inspire or renew your own sacred beliefs even if that's simply a belief in something beautiful.

Pendant measures 3 3/4" long x 1 7/8" wide. Bale is 1/4". Signed on the reverse.

One-of-a-kind, hand-made and meaningful wearable Native art.
