A simple Navajo sand cast silver cross pendant that has a single Sleeping Beauty turquoise stone at its center. Sandcasting is the Navajo technique of using packed sand, or sand-like material (often Portland cement and motor oil) as a mold. The sand-like material is pack around a “model piece” that is removed, leaving an impression, that is then filled with molten silver.
This piece is a stunning example of classic Navajo jewelry. This piece is handmade out of sterling silver and genuine stones.
