Stunning Native American necklace with eight strands of oblong carved turquoise heishi beads, two large barrel shaped stations with inlay in turquoise, mother of pearl, spiny oyster shell, and what feels like smooth polished black resin, and graduated saucer shaped turquoise beads, with silver cone shaped terminals, and a hook and chain close. Probably Santo Domingo Pueblo, circa 1990. 31 1/2 inches wearable length and 1 1/4 inches wide at center. Excellent condition. There is a small loss to the inlay on one barrel station, pictured but not noticeable when worn. Price is significantly adjusted to reflect this tiny imperfection. Display form is life size.
