Monday Madness, The Grit Bracelet
Posted on July 17 2017
A piece of American History: The largest Native American tribe, The Navajo, has a history that dates back to the 1500's. At the time, Native American tribes handmade beads from the natural resources available to them. Depending on the materials, the tribe would assign a value to each bead and use them for trade. Materials included wood, stone, animal bones or teeth, and shells. The Navajo also used beads to tell stories and pass them down from generation to generation. The beads act as the carrier and are strung together along with larger stones featuring carved figures and symbols. When the Europeans arrived, they brought a number of new elements with them including copper, silver, and glass. Navajo Pearls are made of sterling silver and every individual one is handmade from cutting all the way through to stringing. No two beads are alike and the time-intensive process is what makes Navajo Pearls so special and so expensive. http://www.caracolsilver.com/caracol-blog-1/the-remarkable-history-of-navajo-pearls/
