SUPERIOR CHEROKEE BEADWORK ( Vintage Native American Cherokee Indian Beaded Necklace and Earring Set ): Sleek & stylish, this handmade set was purchased about 25 years ago at an Arts & Crafts Show in Tucson. Tiny gray, white, black and deep wine colored beads cascade in strands - 22 in all. On one side of this asymmetrical necklace the focal point is a lovely woven beaded pattern in the same colors. It leads to cascades of beaded strands hanging in a bib-like arrangement. At the back silver cones lead to a short single strand of gray beads ending in a hook & eye closure. The matching beaded earrings hang from silver posts. These scarce beaded pieces are hard to find in such perfect condition. Sleek and chic!

Condition: Excellent.
Size: The entire beaded necklace hangs 19 1/2" when held up by the closure. The strands hang 9" from the base of the front of my neck to the top of the "bib" and 13" to the bottom. The patterned beaded strip is 7 3/4" long, 1 3/4" wide. The earrings are 2" long, 1/2" wide.
