Sterling Silver Navajo Pearls

Sterling Silver Navajo Pearls

Regular price $390 Unit price  per 

The desert’s finest pearls! Navajo silversmith, Sandra Zambrano, has created a single strand of sterling silver, oxidized pearl beads. Native American tribes handmade beads from the natural resources available to them. Depending on the materials, the tribe would assign a value to each bead and use them for trade. Materials included wood, stone, animal bones or teeth, and shells. When the Europeans arrived, they brought a number of new elements with them including copper, silver, and glass! Score! Navajo Pearls are made of sterling silver and every individual one is handmade from cutting, all the way to stringing. No two beads are alike and the time-intensive process is what makes Navajo Pearls so special (and expensive!)
