Shell Necklace by Robert Rosetta, Santo Domingo Pueblo, New Mexico. See below for more information.
This unusual necklace was designed using pieces of natural shell, spaced with rolled discs of like-colored beads. The ends are finished with mother-of-pearl shell beads, with sterling silver beads and a lobster-claw clasp. Robert Rosetta is of the Santo Domingo Pueblo, in New Mexico. This necklace measures 23" long, and is about 1" wide, due to the staggering of the shell beads.
