Additional Info

Santo Domingo's Kenneth Aguilar is one of Kewa Pueblo's most accomplished jewelry artists. His shell on shell pendants regularly command $100s each. Similarly, this 11-strand bead necklace incorporates artistry and rarity that warrants its high price. It can worn singularly or to suspend one of his pendants. 

Incidentally, the pueblo that was once known as Santo Domingo, a name imposed on it at its founding by Spanish priests, recently, decided to rename the Pueblo as Kewa, as being more reflective of their true Native American heritage and traditions..
