The Largos are well known Navajo beadmakers, including Calvin, Esther, Sophie and Sylvia. Each family member has a particular style of beadmaking with Calvin and Esther usually making beads from lighter gauge Sterling, while Sylvia and Sophie make heavier, more expensive beads of higher quality.
This strand consists of handmade lentil-shaped beads of uniform diameter which are oxidized to give them an old pawn look. These are beautifully made and strung to give a fluid movement to the strand. At thirty inches length, these are long enough for some people to wrap them twice around the neck to give a double-strand effect as a short choker. Wear these on their own, or with a pendant.
