Authentic Navajo Pearls(Bench Beads) are made entirely by the hands of Navajo silversmiths. Making each & every bead is a extremely labor intensive process.. These are made with the silver being melted, rolled & then depending on the bead size the artist has in mind, the sterling is then cut into a circle, domed & then the 2-half domes are soldered together to create a full bead. They then drill each hole, file the seams down so where the 2 sections meet, there are no lines of demarcation, hand finish them & then stringing each, one by one.All these things contribute as to why they stand out above the rest! There is nothing used by manufactures to make them get made faster & nothing youll find in these are done in a commercial way. They are just a sterling bead that's been an oxidized & are generally made overseas. What Lamborghini did with cars, what Versace did with fashion, what Rolex did for watches, Navajo Rose Martin's does with Navajo Pearls! Her designer beads are the best in today's market.. You won't get a better made bead or a better looking necklace that what you will get with this designer.. She knows how to make a necklace stand out with her exquisitely made beaded necklaces. Rose Martin is a NM native who resides on the Navajo reservation, in Pinedale, NM just outside Crown Point, which is right in the heart of the Navajo Reservation. She is the descendant of a multi generation family who were actually the 1st to start making Navajo Pearls decades ago & with each generation, each learn the art of making traditional Navajo Pearls..
Rose has now been making them for at least 30 years & is considered A NAVAJO PEARL BEAD MASTER, making these impeccable time consuming beads. She is now teaching her children the art of making these Pearls. Designed in a 3 strand that is very wearable, without it being too big that's so uncomfortable to wear, nor too small that you won't have some kind of statement. The wonderful thing about Rose's necklaces is for the fact that her beads lay right, with the right size beads placed where they'breathe'& never'overlap'!
