Jesse Robbins Mercury Dime Naja Necklace
The necklace features 55 tooled and hand-finished mercury dime beads. The holes have been nail-set punched, leaving an elegant and classic look. Each bead has been hand-filed and finished giving the beads a texture reminiscent of the early Navajo and Pueblo beads made over 100 years ago.
Bringing the necklace together is a great coin, silver tufa cast ingot double naja. The naja is set with Lone Mtn. Turquoise. Further accenting the large Naja, are 10 smaller najas also set with Lone Mtn. Turquoise.
