Vintage Santo Domingo Spiny Oyster Shell Heishi Necklace Aguilar

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. The necklace is metal free and closes with a traditional squaw wrap. These beads were not machine cut and imported from another country and then strung. It's an important piece and each bead was hand carved by a Santo Domingo artist....

Each one 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, but I have no way of knowing so have priced it much lower than a signed piece. 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 accents break up and enhance the mass of beautiful orange colors. It's a stunning piece that is wonderfully comfortable and easy to wear...

Just slip it over your head with no worry about clasps or loss... As beautiful with a white cotton blouse as your best black dress.
