Unique 24" Navajo pearl necklace with a double loop blossom dangle. The artist has combined the Navajo pearls with large tumbled turquoise stones and spiny oyster shells that create a colorful pattern. The double loop with the dangle blossom make this one special.
Navajo Pearls are traditionally made sterling silver beads. Silver beads are a traditional art form for Diné silversmiths, and the beads have as many expressions as there are artisans.Making the beads is a time-consuming process.Oxidized silver (black coloring in the silver) is a process that many jewelers use to give sterling silver a black patina. It gives the jewelry an antique or tarnished look. The process consists of taking clean sterling silver and using a chemical (liver of Sulphur) to treat it to speed up the tarnishing effect.
