Santo Domingo

About The 7 Strand Turquoise Heishi & 14 K Gold Necklace

Have you ever seen a soft rain come down sunlit?  It happens on very rare occasions when a part of the clouds allows the sun to shine through.  This event is considered a special blessing from the Creator--a communication from the heaves!  If it happens during a wedding or birth, one looks forward to good fortune and abundance.  When it comes at a loved one's passing or a gather of remembrance, it is looked upon as a sign that the loved one's spirit will be with you and watching over those the raindrops touch.

This very delicate, beautiful necklace with its 7 strands of intense blue fine turquoise heishi co-mingled with 14K gold tube and hogan beads are reminiscent of the visual effect of a sunshower--as sunshine lights and colors each drop of rain, as it falls to earth.

The artist who made this necklace at least 40 years ago, must have experienced this phenomenom to have captured it so well for someone to actually wear.

About the Artist

The potters of Santo Domingo Pueblo in New Mexico are known for well-formed pottery decorated with dramatic stylized flora, often in combination with geometric designs.

Santo Domingo Pueblo also hosts jewelers with expertise in creating the finest heishi as well as shell overlay work. In the early years, some overlay work combined traditional turquoise, jet and shell with unorthodox modern materials such as poker chips and phonograph records.
