Virginia Tso, Navajo Sterling Silver
Antiqued Satin Finish Necklace and Earrings
Paula says -
"This stunning necklace and earring set is hand crafted and signed by Virginia Tso, a much admired Navajo artist. Each bead is handmade: hand cut, punched (hole), satin finished and antiqued. Then they are hand-soldered and strung on a chain. It is getting harder and harder to find bead sets of this quality and signed beads are a rarity so if you have your eye on this one, don't hesitate."
"Virginia Tso's hallmark is TSO and Sterling on one bead of the necklace. It can take a bit of peering before you will spot the hallmark. Here is an example of her hallmark on the end bead of a necklace."
Matching 10 mm earrings.
The beads have a smooth satin finish and have been oxidized or "antiqued" to give them a rich, subdued tone.
