This is a dead pawn, three strand, turquoise nugget, red coral bead and olive shell heishi necklace that was made in the traditional Santo Domingo Pueblo style.

We purchased this necklace from one of our favorite pawn traders, in the four corners area, who is considered to be an expert regarding older Indian made jewelry. We visit this trader a few times each year because of his incredible knowledge and his unquestioned honesty.

Please see the pictures displayed above as they will describe this wonderful example of handmade Native American art better than any words that we may write.

Here are some of the details:

The necklace, which was made with natural turquoise nuggets, a few red coral beads and hundreds of handmade heishi beads, measures 26" long.

In addition there is 28" of waxed string which will allow you to adjust the length, if you wish.

It weighed in at a considerable 162 grams (5.6 ounces).

Necklaces such as this one have been made since ancient Anasazi artists created them many hundreds of years ago. We don't know how old this wonderful necklace is, but we can tell you that it's in remarkably good condition and that would certainly make a fantastic addition to anyone's jewelry collection.
