OMG that is awesome!

Thank you... I am very partial to these as well. They are very easy to wear. The Chumash culture was mostly destroyed by the Spanish missions in California. At some point I will have to find the right home for the three strands I've purchased over the years.

Here is a close-up of a double necklace of antique Venetian lampwork trade beads. I'm wearing them today.

A couple of recent additions to share. First is an antique Navajo three strand necklace of red and black Mediterranean coral interspersed with benchmade silver beads. Below it is a single strand necklace of matched 19th century Venetian glass lampwork trade beads.

Picked this up today, ring by Navajo artist Will Denetdale. Been trying to find a ring for my middle/index finger for a while but needed a 14 1/2 and this fell into my lap browsing a store. Not sure on the turquoise—Kingman maybe? In person the matrix is more brown than the black it appears in the photo.
