Najas at the Millicent Rogers Museum in Taos

I went to the Millicent Rogers Museum today in Taos. I feel in love with the Najas even before I learned their names which is close to mine.

Naja: (or "Najah") From the Navajo word "Najahe", meaning "crescent". A crescent-shaped silver ornament believed to go back to Moorish designs that was originally a forehead pendant on horse bridles. It is now commonly found pendant from the bottom of a squash blossom necklace.
