This is a beautiful necklace with quite the story. This was given to me in a large lot of beads. It did catch my attention right off the bat. I did not see any makers marks on it at all. So I thought it was costume jewelry and nothing more. I listed the lot of beads for sale with the necklace. Unbelievably the lot sold two times and the buyer each time never paid. I listed it a third time and a very kind lady contacted me. She told me what she thought the necklace was. I was in disbelief, but I took the sale down any way. I did a magnet test on the necklace and bought a silver testing kit. I cant believe it still 98.8 grams of silver made by the Zuni. From what I'm told each bead was hand crafted. I'm still in shock! If any one has any info about date, history, I'm all ears. I still cant believe no one paid for the auction. It wasn't even that much money. The lady that told me what it was could of just as easily bought it for 40.00. Very kind people in this world. Thanks for checking it out.
