This necklace is handmade by Santo Domingo artist Lupe Lovato. The Santo Domingo Pueblo is between Albuquerque and Santa Fe, both cities are known for their Native American art markets. However, the Navajo are big fans of the Santo Domingo style necklaces and have developed a trade system with them that makes it very common to have Santo Domingo artists make the long trip to Gallup, instead of Santa Fe & Albuquerque, to sell their art. This necklace is a fabulous piece of art that has hand drilled white clam shell beads, with two old style turquoise tabs hanging in the center. Lupe hangs to pair of traditional turquoise jaclas from the bottom for a traditional finish. It is amazing how good this will look on you, a wonderful Southwest style piece.
