In a slight departure from his maiden and mudhead style pieces, this pendant by talented Navajo artist Bennie Ration features a koshare clown made of turquoise and sterling silver. The koshare’s body features a single, light blue turquoise stone, set in a simple sterling silver bezel and containing portions of brown matrix running throughout. The stone is surrounded at the base by a sterling silver rope pattern, followed by a sterling silver band stamped with scallop designs and fines lines, cut out along the edges to create a scalloped effect, and appliqued on each side with a row of five sterling silver dots. Protruding from the top of the body is a sterling silver koshare head, complete with cut out eyes and mouth and featuring alternating bands of textured and polished silver. Two “horns,” part of the kosahre’s mask/costume, protrude from the top of the head, featuring sterling fringe on each end. 2″ long including bail x 1 1/8″ wide.
