Description

Creating hand-rolled silver beads, sometimes called “Navajo Pearls,” is a celebrated tradition among Navajo silversmiths and an iconic look of Navajo jewelry. The artist begins with two flat discs of silver then shapes them into domes using a dapping punch. The halves are soldered together and filed to form a beautiful silver bead. Usually formed from heavy gauge sterling silver, the beads may be smooth, stamped, fluted, slightly flattened or round and polished. Making hand-rolled beads is an extremely labor-intensive process but it creates one of the most beautiful and recognized necklace styles in the world.

Versatile and easy-to-wear, these earrings symbolize one of the most widely recognized styles in Native American jewelry. Earrings measure 1-7/8" long by 1" wide with a stainless steel clasps. Comes with a certificate of authenticity.
