This dainty heart pendant was handcrafted by Navajo Native American lapidary artist, Ervin Hoskie, whose work can be found in the Heard Museum and other fine galleries in the American Southwest. This pendant may be dainty but its impact of romance and love is big and bold.
In the Native American culture, as in many other cultures, the heart is a symbol of love and romance, joy, compassion and charity. This heart pendant certainly conveys those feelings.
Spiny Oyster is one of the most popular shells that the Native Americans use in jewelry making. Found in the Sea of Cortez, off the coast of Baja California, Mexico, Spiny Oyster is prized for their great colors of orange, red, pinks, brown, yellow, white and purple.
