Miscellanous Artist - Begaye Navajo New Mexico
This is a very attractive piece, it has a retro feel to it with the leaves and oval of pink mother of pearl. I don't know who the specific artist is/was; the name Begay/Begaye in Dine is like Smith or Gonzalez. The photo on this is a bit deceiving, the shell, while not a deep pink, has more color than I was able to successfully capture.
The chain if probably nickel silver, it is bright but not hallmarked, and it is magnetic.
