The Nizhoni Necklace

210.00

A Southwest inspired modern necklace combining green turquoise, coral and tiger eye beads with antique Navajo silver beads. The Nizhoni is classically knotted like an old-fashioned pearl necklace which has two distinct benefits: it gives the necklace movement and accentuates the shape of each bead. This technique was also developed that in case the necklace should ever tear, the valuable beads are not lost. Today's beading cords are immensely more sturdy than in the old days though and almost impossible to tear. And here, for even better protection from wear, the cord is wrapped in French wire where it connects to the ornate silver clasp. By the way, nizhoni means beautiful in Navajo.

Length: 32 inches, or your desired length.
