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 tufa cast coin silver naja, tufa cast coin silver crosses, and silver fetish, vintage heishi turquoise beads, and a vintage turquoise tab. The necklace is finished with a cotton wrap. 

Size: Naja 1 3/4" by 1 1/2". Beads are approximately 5mm. The crosses measure approx 1 1/4" by 1". Necklace length without the naja is 30"
