SOLD Jewelry : Hand crafted silver bead necklace : Tashena Long : NAJ-N26
Navajo Artist Tashena Long created this gorgeous 22" Sterling Silver hand made silver beaded necklace. Each bead is 5/8".
There are many steps involved in making silver beads by hand. Each bead starts out as a flat silver disk which is then molded into the correct shape. Two halves are put together and carefully soldered together. The beads are put through several washes, and then polished, strung, and polished again. It's a very intensive labor of love.
