Turquoise Bead Necklace

Simple designs of necklaces made from bone, shell and stone have been found in early archaeological excavations in North America. The early Native Americans mined turquoise and made turquoise beads and turquoise beaded necklaces. Turquoise bead jewelry has been a long tradition in our Native American cultural. With the introduction of silver smithing by the Spanish, Native Americans combined their skill of stone cutting with silver work.

Necklace measures 27" at longest length.
