This is a beautiful necklace and earring set that was handmade by the wonderfully talented Santo Domingo Pueblo artist Maggie Garcia.

Maggie made the three strand, choker style, necklace with Melon Shell beads, each of which she hand cut and hand drilled. She separated each of the larger beads from each other with one smaller bead.

The three strands are joined at the back in silver cones.

She made the double hoop earrings the same way, but she added some Olive Shell Heishe beads at the ends of both hoops.

It's very rare these days to find any artist who is willing, and able, to make beads by hand, rather than buying machine made beads from a jewelry supply store.

If you look carefully at the pictures displayed above (especially the close up pictures) you can see that each of the beads is slightly different than the others. The thickness varies from bead to bead.

That's what happens when the beads are made by a human being, rather than a robot.

The necklace measures 18" long and it weighs 40 grams.

Each earring is 3+1/2" long (including the ear wire) and the pair weighs a very comfortable 15 grams (7.5 grams each).
