Yei, short for “YeiBiChi”, are holy figures in the Navajo culture. They are the gatekeepers to the door to the otherworld.
Navajo artist, Tully Linkin, is the artist of this charming, female Yei pin. We know it to be female because head shapes determine the gender, square for female and round for male. Crafted in sterling silver, this bending Yei figure is set with a nicely hued turquoise stone skirt and is perfect for grouping with other pins on your favorite denim jacket, hat or bag.
