Description

Description:

This is a labor intensive completely handmade set of sterling silver Navajo pearls or round bench beads. The beads are made with heavy gauge silver and strung on a thick silver chain. Vinita used techniques passed down by the Haley family who are known for having the best quality Navajo pearls in the Navajo Nation. An oxidation and polishing technique was used on every bead to give it a vintage look. She finished the ends with a completely hand wrought hook clasp. The necklace measures 19″ from end to end.
