Z James Del & Doris Coriz - Santo Domingo/Kewa - Jacla Necklace - Kingman Turquoise & Orange Spiny Oyster

James Del & Doris Coriz, Santo Domingo

Beautiful rich blue Kingman turquoise graduated bead necklace with a jacla (built-in) of orange spiny oyster. This is a signature piece of James and Doris.  

There is no "right" side, you can pick which side you prefer. James has confirmed this is stabilized as a work in "natural" turquoise in this quantity would be well over $500 these days.

I also have a green Royston version of this (Not posted yet).
