ANASAZI STYLE NEEDLE WOVEN BEADED NECKLACE

The name "Anasazi" was given by the Navahos to rival Native Americans living on this continent. Roughly translated it means "Ancient Enemy". The Hopi tribe are descended from the Anasazi. To my knowledge needle woven jewelry of this kind is no longer being created by Native American people.

I'm still working on mastering needle woven Anasazi style jewelry. The design possibilities are endless. I feel as if I have stumbled upon an art form that is grand and glorious and worthy of all the skill and hard work it demands.

This necklace is beaded with silvery metal beads. It was needle woven by hand on my Peacock loom.

I now have four looms. But by far this is my favorite. It is a "Peacock Loom" made in the forties. Has lovely little hand carved gears which keep the warp snug as a bug in a rug.
