The symbol is believed to have derived from the Plains Indians or directly from the Spanish. The symbol was used placed on the bridle of a horse harness to protect the horse and rider from the evil eye. This crescent-shaped symbol is now seen in a lot of Navajo jewelry. It is even used as the centerpiece for the Navajo squash blossom necklace.

This pendant is made using the sand cast method. A gorgeous Spiny Oyster stone is dangling from the center, and two matched turquoise stones are soldered to the tips of the naja. The bail is not soldered close, so it gives a unique opportunity for the owner to adjust it to their liking.
