Virginia Tso is a renowned Navajo jeweler from Pinedale, AZ. She has specialized in sterling silver handmade beads since the 1970s. Virginia often hallmarks her work "TSO" and stamps "sterling" on her beads which have subtle ridges for texture and depth. The beads are oxidized to give them an "old pawn" patina and given a satin finish. Very few artists still create this style of silver bead by hand. The simple style is timeless and elegant.
