Beautiful overlay pin depicting a roadrunner one of Mr Yazzie's signature designs. About 1 1/4" in diameter, marked with dipper hallmark, most likely dates form the 1960's or 50's. Excellent vintage condition. While overlay work was first attributed to Hopi smiths, Willie Yazzie Sr. began doing it very early also in the 1950's, and is well known for his high quality work. PS. I have a belt buckle with an almost identical design that I will list soon, please ask if interested.

A small, but elegant pendant of sterling silver, lapis lazuli, and tiny turquoise stones on each side. The silver is ornately engraved with flowers all over and yet it is a simple piece. It comes with a beautiful new 18” silver snake chain. The pendant itself is about 1-1/2” long and tapers to a rounded lapis stone, so it is hard to measure the bottom.

This is one of the most charming fetish jewelry sets I've ever seen -- and I've seen plenty of them, having lived in New Mexico off and on since the mid-1970s. These bear fetishes are absolutely adorable; they're also unusually large, ranging up to 2 inches long. Nine bears are present altogether, seven on the necklace and one on each earring. Carved from black onyx, they're very hard to photograph, but there's a lot of detail...
