This necklace is made of beads of tiger paw shells. The beads start small and gradually become larger down the strand. The orange is offset by purple on the back side of the beads, creating a beautiful color palette.
Handmade by Navajo artists on the Navajo Reservation, below the Lukachukai Mountains. The artists are self-taught, and incorporate traditional Navajo symbols and themes into each piece.
