Description

Handcrafted by Lupe Lovato of Santo Domingo Pueblo, this turquoise heishi necklace is a classic and stylish representation of an ancient art. Smooth beads of hand-cut, ground, and polished turquoise are paired at the center with an accent of tab-style red spiny oyster beads, known as a jacla.

It is a sophisticated and classic piece taking dozens of hours to complete, and complements modern fashion while carrying on Santo Domingo's distinguished legacy of jewelry-making.

Necklace measures 18" long and beads are graduated from 1/8" to 1/4", center pendant measures 1/2" long and 1" wide with lobster claw closure. 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.
