A stunning and extremely rare pre European shell onament inlaind with turquoise and black stone on our very fine hand woven cord. The Santo Domingo (Kewa) people still make stone and shell jewelry in the same tradition. The other shells, also very rare, are Berber (Amazigh) ankle ornaments. This piece could also be very cool for a guy/man.
One of a kind
Anasazi shell: just under 1 3/4 x 1 3/8″
Necklace length: 18″
A note about our woven cords. We weave these by hand, every one of them. Like all Jewels’ work no two are exact, as each of us. The work is labor intensive. When warmed to the skin the cord becomes more supple, conforms to the wearer, hangs at it should; the necklace transforms more than just a necklace. It becomes her or him.
