ABOUT MARITA BENALLY:
Marita is Navajo & was born & raised in Steamboat,AZ.Compared to many other artists,Marita didn't get started til the late 1990's,in which she gives all the credit to her husband"Daniel Benally"for teaching her everything that she knows about silver & design.She loves creating highly detailed & articulated designs..Presently,she lives in Gallup,NM.

DESCRIPTION:
The beauty of Marita's work is that everything she makes has an impressive touch & is so well made!!

Using a large chunk of natural~minty green Royston turquoise for the body,Marita went on to create every part of this cute bug around it!! The beetle is remarkably hand fabricated,from the twisted wired legs,it's cute antennas,the body work & turquoise eyes.It is a piece of art & no doubt,it's a piece that can't help but get noticed!

Made with versatility.you can wear this as a pin or use the shepherds hook to hang on a strand of oxidized Navajo Pearls.If you do choose to wear this as a pin,personally I would not choose a delicate fabric because of the weight & size..
It's obvious this took thought & time & validates Marita's status as being a reputable & highly qualified artist.
It is made with a vintage revival sterling finish & will compliment today's oxidized Navajo jewelry.

Please see last photos for a gorgeous green Carico Lake Turquoise beetle pin/pendant by Marita!!!
