This beautiful necklace is a classic example of the jewelry made by Dan Simplicio. There are many who attribute almost anything with coral and leaves to him, I do not make attributions lightly. I have been working with Native American jewelry for about 25 years now, and I also seek the advise of others before I attribute a piece. The consensus is this is the work of the master himself. Unmarked silver with nice coral and what looks like Morenci mine turquoise...

Beautiful old pin made of silver and spiny oyster shell made by Ivan Kee the brother of Allen and George Kee who all worked at the White Hogan shop. Ivan began working in the 1940's and continued until his death in 1982. I believe this pin to be early work judging by the style and the fact that he used shell instead of turquoise ( turquoise was almost impossible to get between 1941 and 1946 ). Marked I. Kee and .925 on the back along with another hallmark he used ealry in his career...
