Availability: In stock




Rena Charles is an award winning Navajo jeweler most renowned for her Heishi Bead neckalces. The eldest of nine children, she was born in Cameron, Arizona to a traditional Navajo family. Her childhood studies were completed at Tuba City Boarding School, but as she got older, she discovered her talent at crafting intricate beaded necklaces on a loom, using patterns themed from traditional Navajo rugs. Her signature is that she uses a wider variety of colors in the glass beads than those crafting similar works, making hers the pinnacle of the style.
