Navajo Stamp Decorated 15" Choker Wedding Bead Necklace
Vintage hand wrought sterling silver Navajo wedding beads.
This is an early piece that is on cable. The beads are hand stamp decorated, hand soldered and have the holes punched out from the center before they were soldered instead of by machine as they are today.
Beads are graduated in size from a diameter of 8 mm to 15mm in the center.
Necklace is 15" long, choker length. In fact, it may be a child's necklace.
It weighs 27.6 grams.
It has not been cleaned or polished to preserve the original patina.
Every bead is hand stamp decorated by hand.
