Description
 

Navajo Pearls are entirely crafted by hand and are very time consuming and labor intensive, therefore much more expensive than bench made beads. Bead making is most often the result of a multigenerational family tradition. You will see this art carried on for decades within the same family. Navajo pearls are so versatile, they can be worn as is or with a pendant in the center and go with most everything you wear. Fewer Navajos are making quality beads, so they are becoming rarer.

This beautiful hand stamped silver bead necklace with heavy gauge silver is quite stunning on. Bead makers seldom hallmarked, but this lovely necklace has a hallmarked silver tab, with initials LY. The artist is Leo Yazzie, well-known bead maker. A beautiful Natural patina graces the entire necklace.


The necklace is 22" total length, with the largest bead measuring 1" tapering to 1/2". Necklace weight 99.3 grams. A lovely necklace that will look great with most everything you wear.
