Jesse Robbins Trade Bead Necklace

This necklace is a nod to the incredible and vibrant trade bead necklaces in the Southwest circa 1900. It is strung on historic bohemian and Chinese glass "padre" trade beads made sometime in the 19th century. 

The beads are attached to a Pueblo-style dragonfly cross, silver najas, and a carved shell bird fetish. The necklace is finished with a cotton wrap. 

Size: Pueblo Cross: 3 3/4" by 1 3/4". Beads are approximately 10mm. The naja measures 1 1/8". Necklace length without the cross is 28"
