Jerry Reano Three Strand Turquoise Nugget Necklace


Jerry Reano Turquoise and shell Bead Nugget Necklace
Coming from the acclaimed Santo Domingo Pueblo, this three strand nugget necklace was made by artist Jerry Reano. The polish turquoise nuggets have a beautiful green hue and are separated with 1/16" heishi shell beads. Strung with a durable nylon cord and secured with a sterling silver hook and eye clasp, with a nice even weight the strands drape easily and stay perfectly in place.

15" from around the neck

The Santo Domingo Pueblo is located near the original Cerrillos turquoise mines, and the people have a distinguished history of jewelry making. Santo Domingo jewelry is prized by collectors for its clean, modern look, yet they use many techniques and styles similar to their Anasazi ancestors from a millennium ago. Authentic Santo Domingo jewelry is highly coveted, and Joe and Terry Reano are among the premier bead makes of Santo Domingo using only traditional methods. The Reano family itself is celebrated for producing fine bead work and mosaic inlay jewelry.
