ABOUT SANDRA:

Navajo Sandra Zambrano is the daughter of Michelle Jameson who also is a master at making Navajo Pearls herself & taught Sandra the art of making Navajo Pearls..She is also the daughter of Navajo artist "Anthony Bowman" who is a remarkable jeweler himself & resides in Gallup,NM. Sandra is a fairly young artist who pours her heart & soul into making each of her beads one by one just like were made

ABOUT AUTHENTIC NAVAJO PEARLS:

On today's market there are oxidized sterling beaded necklaces that people call “Navajo Pearls” & are nothing but a machine made oxidized sterling bead & then there are ones that are made entirely by the hands of Navajo silversmiths.These are the latter & what would be called "AUTHENTIC" Navajo Pearl Bench Bead "Pearls".. "Real" Navajo Pearls take on an extremely labor intensive lengthy process & are much more valuable because of the time that goes into making them & are 'artisan made' rather than by machine..One way to tell the difference is,Authentic Navajo Pearls are validated by the beads not having quite the same exact millimeter size,you can also see it in the seams,as well as by 'eye'.

DESCRIPTION:

These necklaces are the most versatile necklace that will literally go with anything & no doubt you’ll find that this might be your best ‘Go-To” necklace that you’ll want to grab every time!Wear alone or with your favorite pendant!

Done the old school way of making these beads,Sandra makes these by cutting,drilling each hole,hand finishing them & then buffs the seams of each one down so you don't see a line of demarcation where the two~1/2 beads meet on each & every one.These are left with a darkened oxidation finish,which gives them a phenomenal vintage style look! Sandra leaves her beads more darkened than most,with just a tiny sliver of silver showing in the middle & makes them look like real gray pearls from a distance!!

Made in a long 26” length that works well for those large size pendants with a good size bale, that you want to drop away from the neck area because of the pendants size.The beads are not dainty & help to balance out the size of larger pendants.

Wear this with your best black dress or pair with ripped,faded denim!!
