This beaded neckpiece by Joyce J. Scott, the “Queen of Beads,” is an incredible example of her trademark, figurative, peyote-stitched beadwork. Utilizing positive and negative space, the neckpiece depicts overlapping figures in different shades of blue, giving the impression of a wearable semi-abstract painting. The clasp is made from a larger bead that slips through a loop of tiny beads to hold in place.
