Joe And Terry Reano Micro Bead Necklace With 14kt Gold
Terry and Joe Reano from Kewa or Santo Domingo Pueblo are known for being among the few remaining artists making their beads in the painstaking traditional, old style process - completely by hand without using any power tools. The final result has an exquisite feel unlike any other.
Often, Joe and Terry Reano's beads have a more traditional look to them, however, this particular necklace of micro pen shell beads feels contemporary and refined, with its elegant 14kt gold bead and cone additions.
Not for the woman who is interested in making loud statements with her jewelry, this particular necklace is understated and sophisticated.
Just imagine the process of making these teeny tiny beads entirely by hand. So much intention and love has gone into every single one.
The necklace measures 24" from end to end and is signed on the cones.
