Santo Domingo Thunderbird Depression Necklace and Earrings 435
History of Santo Domingo Depression Jewelry:
Due to the hardships involved in gathering jewelry-making materials during the Depression, artisans from Santo Domingo Pueblo used materials that were readily available. Battery casings, old vinyl records, red and white plastic cups and plates, hair combs, gypsum beads and turquoise chips were upcycled into affordable tourist jewelry. Originating in the 1930s, but sold well into the 1960s, these pieces are now the focus of museum collections and gallery showings.
