What the heck is "Old Pawn" anyway?"

spindot.gif Please read this "editorial" concerning these Old Pawn Necklaces.  Most of these necklaces were never made to be sold to Anglos or tourists, or to anyone else for that matter.  Most were made by the Navajo (or Zuni) (or Hopi) for their own personal wear and adornment.  Therefore, most are not "signed" as they knew who made them.  Also, many are tied with nylon or silk cords and are not made to look fancy - as they were made for use, not made for sale to someone.  These are real, authentic, used by, worn by, made by, Southwestern Native American Indians.   They were not made to please others, only themselves!  And, if you haven't already, please read our description of "Old Pawn" at this link: "What is "Old Pawn?" .  We think you will find it interesting.

A note about some of the parts of some of the necklaces  shown below that you may or may not have known!

The Naja

Necklace

The naja has its origin with the Moors in Spain.  It is a good luck charm to ward off the evil eye.  It was often used on the browband of Moorish horses.  It is thought that it was handed down from the Spanish to Mexico and then to the Navajo Indians.  The sterling silver naja pendant shown above was made by Navajo Artist Francis Begay.

The Jacula


Necklace


A traditional Pueblo jewelry adornment, a jacla is two loops of heishi that were originally earrings and sometimes fastened to the bottom of a stone necklace as a pendant-like attachment. Jacula is Navajo for “ear string”. The Navajo spelling is the most commonly used version of the word. Jocula is also common but jackla is a phonetic mis-spelling. Although jaculas are attributed to the Rio Grande Pueblo Indians, they were traded with other tribes so have become associated with the Navajo as well. They are seen in vintage photos being worn by members of all southwest tribes, both men and women. In the oldest style necklaces, the jacula is a pair of loop earrings tied onto the necklace.
