Spectacular, intricate, two sided mosaic inlay necklace by San Felipe Charlene Reano. Charlene and her husband Frank began making mosaic inlay jewelry in the early 80's and Charlene's work has since been recognized with ribbons and awards at Eight Northern Pueblo Show and the Santa Fe Indian Market. This magnificent piece measures 21" end to end and is 1 5/8" at the widest point in the center. Each side is inlay with differing stones including Kingman turquoise, black mother of pearl, gun metal mother of pearl, penn shell and spiney oyster shell. Because there is no place to sign her pieces, her necklaces often display a single cube or "chicklet" among the beads supporting the mosaic inlay elements. This necklace is in new, unworn, original condition and is a virtual masterpiece.
