Need help with findings attached to sinew strung necklace

It appears that the findings on this signed sinew string lapis lazuli sterling necklace are a copper spring. How does this effect the value?

I don’t think this is going to effect the value of your piece. It would be nice to see the complete necklace.

Thank you!

Charming piece but from Thailand most likely, for sure import and not NA. What were you told about it?


I purchased this piece in a lot of signed Begay and Los Ballestros Sterling Jewelry. It’s signed. Not from Thailand.

I see we’ve had this convo previously:

Help identify sterling silver bead design and Native American silver smith

Whatever else was in your lot, this necklace is Thai made, or else crafted from Thai/Asian beads readily available in supply shops.


I agree with @chicfarmer. This is a “stringer” necklace made from mass produced machine made beads. Nothing about it says NA, and some of the beads are very Asian in style. It’s a pretty necklace, but definitely not handmade NA.
