Mary Tom - Navajo Jewelry
Handmade Bead Pendant
Sterling Silver Square Bead
with 18 Silver Box Chain

Artist/Source: Mary Tom (Mary Lou Tom), Navajo Jewelry - Arizona, USA

Native American Indian Jewelry

Award winning artist. Beautiful handmade pendant with chain. This square bead is the same as the ones Mary makes for her famous necklaces (see elsewhere on this site).  This is totally handmade.

This signature design of Mary's is instantly recognizable, having won many awards and been featured in multiple books on Native American jewelry. 

Mary is a lovely person, great fun.  You will often see her name in association with her former husband Jack, they now work independently.  This last summer (2014), Mary virtually SOLD OUT at Santa Fe Indian Market - VERY IMPRESSIVE when you consider there were over 1200 other artists from whom people could purchase.

See elsewhere on site for other Mary Tom pieces.


Type: Pendant with 18" (non-native) (Italian chain)

Metal: Sterling Silver

Stones or Other Materials: None

Total Necklace Length: 18"

Square Beads: 7/8"L x 7/16"W x 7/16"


Pendant Weight (with chain): .2oz/6gr/.013lb


Signed: Unsigned - no place to sign without marring the piece.  I purchased this directly from Mary and it is unmistakable, only she and her former husband, Jack make this style.

Hallmarked: Sterling

Repeatable Design:  Yes but each one is different. They are totally handmade. I practically had to browbeat Mary to make these, she likes to concentrate on the bigger pieces.  Since making some of the smaller stuff for me, she has found there is a good market for it.  I suspect the pendant beads may be ones that in some way don't meet her requirements for her necklaces as she wants everyone to be the same size.

Available in other materials: Possibly some gold,  Mary used to do a fair amount of gold work but since prices have gone so high rarely does anymore.


Lead Time For Custom:  Typically 2 to 4 weeks to ship.  This can vary according to availability of materials and whether or not Mary is traveling or has a show coming up.
