Each of these oxidized sterling silver beads has been handmade by Navajo jeweler, Amanda Larry. The process is very involved. Imagine a wooden or steel block with different sizes of domes in it, along with a variety of tools that fit exactly into those domes. A flat sheet of silver or gold is layed on top of the selected size. The matching tool is placed on top and hit hard to create the half dome shape in the metal. Each dome is then sawed out of the flat sheet of metal by hand, soldered together with the other half, and the edges filed down and polished.
