Cedar Beads of Navajo Legend
These unique necklaces were made by southern California artist Jan Gordon. An old Navajo legend says that wearing cedar beads will chase off evil spirits and keep nightmares away. Green juniper berries are also said to have been chewed by the Navajo when traveling at night to ward off ghost spirits of dead people. Small necklaces or bracelets were put on children, and hung on cradleboards of infants for protection and so that the young might grow in harmony. Also known as ghost beads.

We have about 10 of these left and probably cannot get more. Generally, they are multi-colored. Please allow us to pick one for you.
