Direct from my personal collection, you are viewing a fine piece of artful Native American Turquoise shell, Jet and Spiny Oyster Heishi beaded necklace. There are bench beads near the top hook clasp with great old patina along with whitish purple spiny oyster shell intermixed w/Turquoise beads possibly from the Number 8 mine. However, looks to be a close match along w/the inlay insets across the shell itself. Possibly Jet is interspersed w/white stone mosaic complimenting it as the Center focal point!
I have worn this necklace on a few occasions and loved it! There are 2 very tiny connector beads on the back of the shell which really ties the piece in nicely. All edges are smooth and feel comfortable when worn. The length approx 10.5 inches long on the side.Shell measures 2.2 " across at the widest point x 2.5" long down the center.
