Please make an offer if you do not agree with our price. FACTS: It is one (1 item) necklace. It is the exact duplicate digital scan on Picture #1 to fill in the empty, white space, if you catch our drift. You will NEVER find any finer (handmade) beads out there (from a bygone, golden era). Actual color and shape may vary from pictures due to glare, digital camera phenomenon, lighting, your computer settings, and other factors -- beyond our control (since we try desperately hard not to use Photoshop, as if).Welcome, Extending this necklace is not a problem. Many Santo Domingo Pueblo bead necklaces are fashionably extended this way. It is also not just by Mary Ann NOT a solo work. This impressive but bewildering heishe necklace is one of Joe (Francis) and Mary Calabaza's early masterpieces. Please do not confuse Cala b aza with Cala v aza. We say, "bewildering, " for as you can see for yourself, the beads are the skinniest we have ever encountered.
Most people say, "Fine beads, " but that sounds so deliberately vague. Look very carefully; the beads are even skinnier than Charles Lovato's beads in Picture #4. You are seeing Joseph and Mary's top-of-the-line work.
The thinner the beads, the better. And it takes YOUNG, extremely sharp eyes and artistic talent!
To do a necklace such as this ABSOLUTELY. Therefore, some works are far better than others.Also, does our necklace look like a Tenorio creation to you? Well, Mary is EXACTLY a Tenorio since the day she was born. Please check out the books Evolving Southwest Indian Jewelry (page 146), and Silver + Stone (page 30) to know more about them. Even in the'70s, Joseph and Mary's pieces did not come cheaply. Thanks to us, we love sleuthing...
And to put two-and-two things together for you. The great thing about this necklace is the fact that it has the two , not juse one, essential hallmarks: the artists' official, CLASSIC (conjoined "JMC") mark and the Santo Domingo Pueblo authentic stamp SDP.Please look up the word "approximate" if you are unsure about its meaning before you have a cow about it on a social media gossip page. Oh, ya know da type. Do not let this opportunity pass you by, especially since this is our only Joseph and Mary masterpiece. And, please do not expect the organics and turquoise to be like freshly made glass without matrix, inclusions, fissures, veins, and nature's beautiful flaws, even though we have never used this necklace.
Actually, the cost may even be higher if the size of the box is huge and if you open the package... Since this example is strictly about refusing a package being handed to you by the UPS carrier.BTW, this example is about a small box just to send out a wristwatch. Actual color and shape may vary from pictures due to glare, digital camera phenomenon, lighting, your computer settings, and other factors. Thank you for stopping by. NOTE: This necklace will have tamper-security stickers Void If Removed.
