A necklace made of many strands of beads. Red coral spacers break up strings of turquoise and spiny oyster beads.
In Native American jewelry, turquoise is a stone of protection and success, while red coral symbolizes life forces and passion. Spiny oyster symbolizes joy and warmth.
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.
