Turquoise and sterling silver combine in this beautiful, traditional sunface pendant by Navajo silversmith Bennie Ration. The majority of the piece comprises sterling silver, while a single, oval turquoise stone containing portions of white and gray matrix set in a simple sterling silver bezel makes up the majority of the body of the piece. The remainder of the body features a thin sterling silver rope pattern surrounding the stone, followed by a narrow sterling band stamped and cut out with various designs to form a pattern, as well as appliqued with two rows of sterling dots. The body hangs from a sterling silver sunface, complete with deeply grooved rectangular eyes and a round, appliqued mouth. The head is surrounded entirely by detailed and delicate sterling silver feathers. The forehead of the piece is stamped with vertical and horizontal lines. 2 1/4″ long x 1 1/8″ wide.
