Working together, Joe and Angie Reano of Santo Domingo Pueblo have created a bold, versatile and unique statement necklace that is a true representation of their combined talents, craftsmanship, and many years of jewelry-making experience.
This one-of-a-kind necklace features turquoise and red spiny oyster shell, an iconic color combination reminiscent of the bold sunsets the Southwest is known for. Carefully cutting each stone by hand, each of the five pendants on this necklace was carefully created and laid upon shell and pipestone creating a unique reversible look.
Necklace measures 18" long and can extend to 28-1/2" with attached extender. 3/4" wide with pendants measuring 1-1/2" in diameter. Largest oval at bottom of necklace measures 2" long x 1-1/2" wide. Comes with certificate of authenticity.
Our Guarantee of Authenticity
At Shumakolowa Native Arts, we guarantee that your purchase is an original and authentic work handcrafted by Native American artists as defined by the Indian Arts and Crafts Act of 1990. We ask our artists to complete an extensive certification process, providing a CIB (Certificate of Degree of Indian Blood) card and other documentation of their Native American heritage. Our team of experts carefully inspects every product to guarantee it is handcrafted using traditional, sustainable processes and natural materials of only the highest quality. We record the place and date of each purchase and pride ourselves in paying a fair price that allows artists to make a living practicing their craft. At a time when many commercially-made products are being sold as handcrafted Native American art, our in-depth purchase process allows us to guarantee the authenticity of every unique piece of fine art we offer. For more than 35 years, we have made it a priority to visit artists in their studio or home to purchase their latest handcrafted pieces and learn about their work. We have developed lasting relationships with artists, as well as dealers and collectors, and we take pride in being a trusted destination for fine Native American art.
