This shining sterling silver naja was made by Navajo jeweler, Francine Begay.  It has a lovely design at the top that reminds us of a plant.  She stamped designs near the top.  It has a shepherd's hook on the back that can slip over beads or worn with a chain (does not come with chain in photo).  Stamped "L.Begay" and "Sterling" on the back.

Size: 2.125" H x 1.5" W

Najas are a prominent symbol in Navajo jewelry and are always the center piece in squash blossom necklaces.  I was told they are a feminine symbol, and their crescent shape represents the arms of a matriarch and the generations of the past and future.  It symbolizes ease of movement, paths of least resistance for the family, even during challenging times.  There is a sense of open arms in the shape of the naja that is soothing.  Some najas have hands on each end.
