This is a lovely handmade Contemporary Jackla Necklace by Rodney Coriz, Native Indian.. He has hand rolled the Turquoise Stones to form the graduated necklace which has been adorned with a hand made Sterling Silver Barrel Bead. It was then finished with Sterling Silver Barrel caps with Sterling beads and a hook and eye closure. The jackla is created to showcase a Sterling Silver bail which holds a large Sterling Silver barrel. Swinging from the barrel are the two "earrings" featuring the matching Turquoise disc beads and hand cut Spiny Oyster stones. Originally the Native Women, while they were waiting for the Ceremony to begin, would tie their earrings to the end of their Necklace. That was the beginning of the Style of Necklaces that we see today. Rodney Coriz is an outstanding Artisan and adheres to his Culture along with using his Contemporary Interpretation. This lovely necklace can be worn by itself, with the jackla and the jackla can be worn on a set of Sterling Silver beads as well. The necklace and jackla together measure a hang length of 15 1/2 inch. The necklace is 19 inches long by itself. When you purchase one of Rodney Coriz's pieces, you have become a "Collector". This complete necklace wighs 88 grams. Each item by a Native American artist is accompanied by a Certificate of Authenticity.
