The beads have a smooth satin finish and have been oxidized or "antiqued" to give them a rich, subdued tone.
Jan Mariano, Navajo
Sterling Silver Antiqued Satin Finish
Navajo Pearl Bead Necklace
Paula says - "These handmade sterling silver bead necklaces are often called Navajo Pearls or Desert Pearls."
Each bead is handmade: sterling silver discs are hand cut and punched for holes. The two halves are hand-soldered, satin finished and antiqued. The beads are then strung on a chain.
