Five strands of turquoise stones and red glass beads with silver spacers and myriad charm pendants (animals, Native American iconography, desert Southwest themed items). Some of the thinner pieces of metalwork exhibit some dings and bending. Many have aquired a patina consistent with their age. There are some loose spots throughout as though there are beads missing from the original construction. Sold as-is but with plenty of potential for creating a reclaimed piece. Combined weight of items is 8.975 ozt (279.1 g). Keyword: Native American, Amerindian, American Indian, Navajo, Zuni, gemstones, gem, necklace, fashion, Southwest, South West, Fetish
