Pin, Novelty, Sterling Silver, Yei, Hallmark, 313

Size Guide
Yei, short for “Yei Bi Chi”, are holy figures in the Navajo culture.  They are the gatekeepers to the door to the otherworld.

Navajo artisan, R. Benally, is the creator of this charming, female Yei pin.  We know it to be female because head shapes determine the gender, square for female and round for males.  Crafted in sterling silver, this bending Yei figure is perfect for grouping with other pins on your favorite denim jacket, hat or bag.
