Beautiful sterling silver kachina ring with Kingman turquoise is a size 9 1/4. This very large detailed kachina has a three cabochon turquoise headdress. The other three stones are set as the two eyes with a nice cabochon mounted on the skirt. The actual kachina has been created using bead wire, smooth wire, twisted wire, sheet silver, along with decorative stamp work. The kachina holds two offerings: a pottery vase and an eagle feather. The artist mounted the kachina to a solid silver wire band and applied prayer feather fans to both sides of the kachina that work as both decoration and as signet ring guards.

Condition: Excellent- original condition.
Provenance: Acquired from a private family collection from Texas; originally purchased on the plaza at Santa Fe.
