This handmade 2.5 inch wide Naja (inspired by the traditional Native-American/South-western Squash Blossom shape) necklace features 7 natural Turquoise stones. Hangs on an adjustable 28" chain.
The Naja (or crescent moon shape) is often seen depicted at the center of squash blossom necklaces - a style of traditional Native American/South-western silver jewelry - that first appeared in the late 1800s, and is believed to be influenced by contact with Spanish Mexicans. “Naja” is the name the Navajo gave to a symbol believed to have originated in the Middle East in ancient times. Like so many symbols, it was created as a talisman for protection, with the Moors first affixing it to their horses’ bridles to ward off the evil eye. Most early examples of squash blossom necklaces feature plain Najas (strictly silver), but later designs began to incorporate turquoise and coral.
Our takeon the Naja builds upon a classic, meaningful talisman, but features some of our best-selling stones and motifs.
This round, best-selling brass bracelet is one size-fits (most) small-medium sized wrists with a 6.5 inch diameter. Choose your custom stamped words or numbers (1-5 words, up to 14 characters on 2 lines) and write them in the message box on this page. If interested in a symbol or other font (other than the tiny all uppercase one pictured) please message us for options.
For choosing words, if you have any questions please don't hesitate to contact us! we recommend less is more for the cuffs, over crowding tends to be harder to read, so we like to stick to 4 short/average length words (cuff can fit a total of 14 characters on two lines, characters include spaces - symbols take up more than one character worth of space).
Since these bracelets are 100% brass, they are very strong (pretty impossible to dent/bend or break) and will not turn color. The springy clip-open feature enables them to open to fit around the thin part of the wearer's wrist, without falling off; the oval shape provides a more comfortable wear.
Cuffs may over-time get an antiqued look which many customers prefer, however if you do not, we recommend to simply buff all around the bracelet with some fine steel wool or polishing cloth to shine it up.
Please be advised it can take up to 3 weeks to make and ship your cuff - please don't hesitate to reach out if you would like to know when your cuff will be ready. :)
(If looking for a larger size, please inquire about our NEW larger clip-cuff, that fits a 7.5 inch wrist).
