Can someone tell me about this necklace please?

Hi. I think im posting this right? Lol. This necklace was given to me from a friend whos wife passed. We know they purchased it at least 15 to 20 years ago. It was like this when they bought it in arizona then? I cant figure out the artist and my 6 year old niece is facinated with it so id love to be able to tell her anything i can when i gift it to her. I might have it restrung also. Should i?

Reminds me of what was often made in the 1980’s. The heishi beads look like pen shell.
These were made by both Native Americans and others.
