Navajo Sand Cast Naja Necklace with Bench Beads

Vintage Navajo Bench bead necklace with a beautiful sand cast Naja pendant. The bench beads are hogans and pinyon with hand solders and holes that were poked from the inside out. ( The early way) The necklace is 24" long. The naja measures 2 1/4" by 1 7/8". 

I restrung this necklace just as it was because the original string was about to break in several places. It is early and not signed. C. 1925. Weight: 44 grams. 

Great alternative to a traditional squash blossom as a fraction of the price.
