Coins have always been associated with Navajo silver. Old timers talk about giving the Navajo smiths Mexican pesos because you couldn?t get any American silver. Coin silver jewelry is some of the most sought after and artists like Perry Shorty make a living hammering coins into magnificent pieces of revival art. Traditional Navajo sandcast artist Mildred Parkhurst made this necklace showcasing 8 Lady Liberty coins along with Mercury dimes. You will look amazing wearing this piece and always be asked the question, are those real coins? Make sure you are ready to share the wonderful history of Navajo jewelry making with all those who strike up the conversation. The necklace also has one more eye inspiring piece, the classic Turquoise Mountain sandcast naja.
