Navajo Buffalo Coin Strand Of Beads


This strand of beads was created by a Navajo silversmith using coin silver.  Navajo silver smiths were making beads from filed back silver coins as far back as 1910.  Small remnants of coins can be seen on surface of many of these beads.  This strand hangs to perfection!
