Created in his signature, detailed style, this adorable pin/pendant by Navajo silversmith Bennie Ration showcases a shadowbox turtle in sterling silver and turquoise. The pin/pendant features a single, thin oval turquoise stone at the center of the shell, set in a simple sterling silver bezel and containing small portions of golden matrix. The remainder of the piece comprises sterling silver, with step and triangle patterns cut out along the shell, creating the shadowbox effect, and thin sterling panels protruding from the shell to create limbs and a tail. The piece is finished with a thicker sterling panel comprising the head, stamped with two dots for eyes. 1 5/8″ long x 1 3/8″ wide. Hook bail is located at the back side of the head, while pin runs horizontally across the body.
