"Choctaw Pearls" - light green / aqua turquoise in 8mm beads from the M. Roanhorse collection, Choctaw heritage - 2017

Among the most beautiful color of natural turquoise available today comes this strand of light-green / aqua color turquoise in 8mm beads. Light and lovely this necklace is set to fit a 20 inch neckline. 

"I like to call this necklace 'Choctaw Pearls'. One reason is, when I matched the beads together and created this necklace for the first time, I felt as if I had equaled the beauty of cultured pearls. I remembered a story I was once told by a Navajo Elder. She said the name many Navajo often give to a simple, elegant strand of classic turquoise beads is called 'Navajo Pearls'. When I completed this necklace I thought of my people and my Choctaw heritage. I decided to designate this beautiful color of turquoise as 'Choctaw Pearls' due to the beauty held within"... {M. Roanhorse, 2017}.

This strand of "Choctaw Pearls" - light green / aqua turquoise in 8mm beads features a sterling silver lobster-style clasp.
