Liquid Silver and Turquoise Necklace
So delicate they flow over the skin like water, ten hand-strung strands of sterling silver heishi beads twine with a single exquisite strand of 5mm turquoise beads. The exquisitely lovely Liquid Silver and Turquoise Necklace these strands form is handmade by Navajo jewelry artisans. Sterling silver cones and hook-and-eye clasp. Natural turquoise may vary slightly. 24"l.
The Navajo People, or Diné, of the American Southwest are known for the artistry of their sterling silver and turquoise jewelry, like this graceful Liquid Silver and Turquoise Necklace. Many fine examples of artisan Navajo jewelry are curated by our National Museum of the American Indian. Home to one of the most extensive collections of Native American art and artifacts in the world, the approximately 800,000 objects held by our National Museum of the American Indian represent more than 1,000 indigenous cultures throughout the Western Hemisphere.
Every Smithsonian purchase will arrive with a museum provenance card explaining how it is adapted from or inspired by an object or objects in our collection.
