This bold Ceremonial Necklace from the Santo Domingo Pueblo in New Mexico takes its inspiration from the ancient jacla necklaces of the Anasazi. The word "jacla" means "ear string" and refers to the two loops of stone tied to the base of the necklace. The loops were worn as earrings during special occasions and ceremonies and tied to the necklace when not in use. Tabular pieces at the bottom of each jacla represent "corn". This superb ceremonial necklace incorporates white clam heishi and Mother of Pearl and is an excellent example of Tewa artistry.
