American Indian Dogs Turquoise Pendant


The subject of my Nevada blog, Legends of Lost Nevada, this one goes to the American Indian Dogs. Becoming man’s best friend alongside this country’s first people, it’s the story of original friendship, and that of Danger Cave: one of the oldest canine burial sites ever recorded in the Great Basin, and the world.

This viking turquoise stone, mined and cabbed by Denver Otteson, contains turquoise markings that remind me of the glacial lakes the Great Basin’s first people and dogs would’ve lived near. The pendant is about quarter-sized, and is made with all sterling silver materials. Each purchase comes gift wrapped, along with a silver polishing pad for optimal flashiness and a complimentary Song Dog Silver sticker.
