During most of the year, Maggie's "regular" job is working as a school administrator for the Santo Domingo school district...but now that the school year has ended she has gone back to her true love, which is making wonderful, one-of-a-kind pieces of jewelry.
If you appreciate beautiful and unique Native American jewelry this is one set that you really should take a good look at. We can guarantee that you'll never see another just like it!
This is an absolutely gorgeous Picasso Jasper necklace & earring set that Maggie just completed for us. The story of the necklace began when we purchased the Picasso Jasper beads from a gemstone trader while we were traveling through Arizona and New Mexico on our most recent buying trip. When we returned home we gave the beads to Maggie and asked her to perform her "magic" with them. The pictures displayed below will show you the results of her wonderful creativity and artistic ability.
Be sure to look at the close-up pictures as they will show you some of the most beautiful beads that we've ever seen. There are an amazing amount of different colors in the various shaped beads and the patterns in the two large beads are simply spectacular. The large beads (which are 1" in diameter) have sculptured surfaces that give the appearance of waves.
So now we can offer you this wonderful example of hand crafted, old style, Santo Domingo jewelry, but with Maggie's contemporary touch that makes this set so unique.
The necklace measures 18+3/4" long and it weighs a very comfortable 62 grams. The earrings are 1+1/4" long (including the ear wires) and they weigh 6 grams (3 grams each).
With warmer weather just around the corner, many of our customers have already started shopping for "summer style" jewelry... and colorful necklaces such as this one are already in heavy demand. The colors in this necklace will go perfectly with most lighter colored summer clothing.
Since Maggie custom made this one-of-a-kind necklace & earring set for us, you can be sure that you won't see anybody else wearing one just like it. Maggie, like most very creative artists, never exactly duplicates any of her work.
NOTE: The coin that appears in some of the pictures is a quarter dollar.
