This eight-strand coral necklace consists of small natural coral, polished to a beautiful sheen. The ends are tied off and covered with string in a pueblo wrap fashion.

It is easy to feel the value of this deeply colored set of coral. Arranged neatly in even strands, the necklace flows in a natural way. The compilation of eight strands results in a piece that is very well balanced.

Although this necklace is unsigned, due to its pueblo wrap, we believe this necklace to be made by an artisan from Santo Domingo (Kewa) Pueblo. It is clear, however, that the artist crafted it with care and vision, as the result is something outstanding and sophisticated that any individual could be proud to wear on any occasion.
