Turquoise and Sterling Silver Oxidized Bead Necklace


Mixed turquoise tones and varied bead shapes make this Navajo necklace dazzling and contemporary. Easy to pair with other turquoise pieces in your collection, this necklace also layers well with oxidized silver.

Measurements: Expandable from 23 inches to 25½ inches in length. The width of the widest bead is ¼ of an inch. 

On a tour of New Mexico in the winter of 1929-1930, Dr. Barnes acquired a large number of turquoise and silver jewelry pieces, which are displayed alongside paintings and other objects. As with all of his purchases, he chose pieces according to the principles of light, line, color, and form. Our retail collection of Native American jewelry is from the Navajo reservation in New Mexico, where the same artistic traditions Dr. Barnes admired continue in jewelry making practices today. You can enjoy the beauty and grace of this timeless style with pieces made by contemporary designers working in long-held traditions.
