This beautiful natural shell necklace has been handmade by Native American Mary Fox. She has meticulously painted the intricate feathers on the face of the actual shell of a soft cream color, tipping them with a soft black. The traditional center design is of softly muted teal and brick formed over this soft black. The innate artistry of forming the heishi beads (strung on wire) is displayed in the two 8" strands connected to the shell, which is 2" x 2". Weight of only 1 3/4 oz makes this piece an awesome addition to your ensemble. This is signed Mary Fox with her trademark.
