    Traditional "Native American style" loomed necklace - either from the 1930's or the 1970's. I couldn't find these symbols in my research books or online. Beautiful navy, chartreuse lustre beads and opaque white.

    I love these necklaces and own a few more I posted last year but I haven't had much luck identifying them. Any help is appreciated. Yes, I realize these are probably all tourist items and not worth much, but I enjoy the designs and wear them every so often.

    This one is 5/8" wide by 26" w/2" fringe.

      Thank you Amber - have you run across something like this?

      I have zero knowledge of Native American treasures. I did spend my childhood camping in the west (70s) so I know my tourist pieces better.

      Amber did your family travel around the west in a station wagon? We only went to Minnesota and eastern Iowa that I can remember - woo hoo! that was enough! - but it was fun. As an adult I drive a little bit further. Thank you for love and comments...

      They are Chinese characters meaning Happiness & Good Fortune.
    7. valentino97 valentino97, 8 years ago
      Yes geo26e - thank you. I thought they looked like Asian characters but wasn't sure.
