This is an quality three piece grouping by Santo Domingo Pueblo artist Paul Tenorio. The largest necklace is TEN hand rolled strands of natural jet, turquoise, and coral, the large focal bead also having a layered slab of mother of pearl shell, beautifully finished in sterling cones, traditional clasp, and extension chain.This necklace measures up to 25 around the neck, and then another 3 with the huge (1 3/8) focal bead and jacla drops. Absolutely beautiful and immaculate craftsmanship, all natural materials, and a nice bold large design. The second necklace is five delicate strands of turquoise, jet, natural red coral, and shell heishi, all hand rolled, sterling cones, traditional clasp, and extension chain. Both necklaces are strung on string instead of steel cable, so they hang very fluidly. The earrings are sterling silver, made in jacla style, with natural red coral, jet, and turquoise. The earrings measure 3.5. I believe the turquoise on the earrings could be made from block material. I bought this group with the intent to resell, but now Im finding it heartbreaking to let them go, but I need to focus my collecting scope! Multiple very clear pictures are provided, detailed descriptions given.
