#655 Vintage Native American Beaded Religious Cross Necklace | The Gypsy Madonna Collection
Vintage Native American Beaded Religious Cross Necklace | The Gypsy Madonna Collection

Dating to the 1930s or so, may I offer this interesting hand beaded Native American necklace that I actually found in France on a trip to Paris. Very short, the necklace might have been made for a child or an adult with a very small neck. The cording used in the making appears to be a tightly woven wool thread of a nice thickness - the beads, of course, are glass. Same design both sides. It's possible this piece was meant to adorn a religious doll or perhaps a Santos (religious statue).

Condition: I've got to admit, for its age, it is pretty nice. I can't spot any beads missing and the wool still appears to be quite strong. Still, it does look fragile although the handling of it is normal to the touch.

Size: Length - from end to end - is about 14". The pendant section measures 3-1/8" x 2" approx.

Final Comments: Just a fabulous piece of old!
