Regular price $185.00
This is a wonderful sterling silver and turquoise brooch by Navajo silversmith, Joe Delgarito! The brooch is figural and depicts a whimsical dragonfly bug with four wings, a two-part body, a head with two eyes and a tail. The wings are beautifully stamped with zigzag and other designs and v-shaped tracks adorn the tail. The body of the dragonfly is represented by two large, sky blue turquoise cabochons that have been set in smooth silver bezels. The brooch is three-dimensional, adding to its visual interest and beauty. The pin secures with a rolling, c clasp closure. It's such an enchanting piece!

The brooch measures about 1 3/4 inches long, 1 1/4 inches wide and weighs 7.6 grams. It is signed and hallmarked with a cursive letter "D" for Joe Delgarito and the word "Sterling" on the back of the brooch. Each of the turquoise cabochons measure approximately 8mm in size.

This brooch is a splendid work of art! It's a marvelous handcrafted Navajo piece that would make an excellent gift and a great addition to a Navajo jewelry collection. The brooch is in excellent vintage condition and ready to wear out of the box!
