The use of spiny oyster corn petal jaclas is a signature style of the Navajo nation here is Arizona and the southwest. I’ve created my own version here using a combination of turquoise and spiny oyster shell, combined with Navajo made hand stamped sterling silver barrel beads. It closes with a handmade, hand stamped sterling silver toggle clasp.
This necklace measures 24 1/2 inches long. The sterling barrel beads measure 3/4 inches, and the larges corn petal bead is approximately one inch. The sterling toggle measures 1 1/4 inches by 1 inch.
