Every jewelry collection needs a classic silver bead necklace! Called Navajo beads or pearls, this one is 23 ½" long and weighs 33.9 grams. It is fashioned with smooth, graduated sterling silver beads. In the early days, the Navajo would use materials at hand for beads, such as stone, shells, wood, bone. After the Europeans introduced metals, it became common for silver to be used for the beads. The labor intensive process involves hand making each bead from start to finish.
This style necklace can be paired with others in various lengths or a pendant can be worn on it. Either way, it is a necklace to be worn for many, many occasions!
