Antique Pueblo Cross Necklace with Isleta Cross Pendant (Pueblo Indian, New Mexico)
This necklace is made from handmade Sterling Silver beads which have been identified as being from the 1940's. The crosses are undated and unsigned but likely from the same period. It was in the collection of a Native American Jewelry academic (now deceased), and we believe she had it restrung in the early 1990's - it is strung in a Pueblo-wrap on cotton string, and certainly has never been worn since that time. Please contact us for more photos, other informational tidbits, etc.
