The Find Moab presents this gorgeous Mexico Pearl necklace. The patina on these handmade pearls is absolutely wonderful. The 1/2" beads are all the same size, and they are weighty. Bench beads are made by first rolling out and cutting sterling silver strips that are domed by hand into two spheres, which are soldered together then filed to smooth out the shape before drilling the holes for the beads. It is a labor intensive process, which comes through in the finish. Many beads show a seam yet these have been worked so well that while you can see where the two pieces came together, the seam has been smoothed through additional filing and work. The beads are strung onto a thick sterling silver link chain. This piece was acquired from a private collector in Missouri, and if there are any questions, please contact us at 702-301-2252.
