Each bead is handmade: hand cut, punched (hole), stamped, satin finished and antiqued. Then they are hand-soldered and strung on a chain.
Virginia Tso - Navajo
Antiqued Satin Sterling Silver
Fluted Bead Necklace and Earrings Set
Necklace - BD835A - $611
Paula says - "This is the real deal. Stunning, hand made and signed by a much admired Navajo artist. The fluted satin beads have been oxidized or "antiqued" to give them a subdued, rich tone. It is getting harder and harder to find beads of this high quality, so here's you chance to own one.
"Virginia Tso's hallmark is TSO and Sterling on the last bead on one side of the necklace. These handmade beads are fluted AND hallmarked so it takes a bit of peering before you will spot the hallmark amidst the fluting. Here is an example of her hallmark on some smooth beads."
Corn beads are 8 mm diameter.
Melon beads are 12 mm diameter.
