beads with sterling silver findings
by Kenneth Aguilar
MU77 - $1,650
Aguilar is one of Santo Domingo's
most accomplished jewelry artists.
His shell on shell pendants are
spectacular. So is this 11-strand
that can also be used to
suspend one of his pendants. Or,
object of Native American
jewelry, it stands on its own.
Incidentally, the pueblo that was
once known as Santo Domingo,
a name given to it at its founding
by Spanish priests, recently,
to rename the Pueblo
as Kewa, reflecting their Native
American heritage and traditions..
