Each bead in this vintage necklace was created using a hand-pump drill, a traditional labor-intensive method used by artisans in Santo Domingo Pueblo and resulting in jewelry with an organic, distinctive character. The beads—spiny oyster, white shell, Mother of Pearl, coral and turquoise—are artfully arranged in regular intervals, finishing with turquoise tabs and hand-forged and -stamped sterling silver cones. Hook-and-eye closure. One of a kind. USA. Approx. 30"L.
