Vintage Santo Domingo Spiny Oyster Shell Heishi Necklace
This is a listing for a vintage Santo Domingo necklace. The collection covered the 70's through the 90's and included many high end exceptional Native American pieces. These beads are not signed, as most vintage Santo Domingo pieces aren't. It's metal free and closes with a traditional squaw wrap. The beads are all hand cut, ground and polished in a rondelle shape. A necklace like this requires a huge investment in time and material and of course a great deal of skill. The workmanship is exquisite and strongly resembles Ken Aguilar's work. His spiny oyster bead necklaces are very expensive and highly collectible.

Has a 16 inch drop, so approximately 32 inch wearable length. The beaded section is approximately 23 inches in length and there are 5 strands. Each bead is approximately 6mm across, strung on fiber cord, which gives the necklace a flexible, comfortable and attractive drape. The shell is a blend of very dark, medium and light orange.

The turquoise breaks up the mass of color and adds a delightful accent. This is a piece that will look beautiful with a white blouse or a black dress. Very easy to throw over the neck for an instant feeling of luxury and beauty.
