Native American pendants on Pretty by JL necklaces >>-----> Toh-Atin Gallery

Anyone who knows me well knows that I am a big, big fan of Native American art work. Including jewelry, rugs, blankets, pottery, baskets, clothing, paintings, books, etc... It is very lucky for me that I live in southwest Colorado, or might that be why I live in southwest Colorado?!

Anyway, you might then understand how excited I was to get the opportunity to make some necklaces to compliment a variety of Native American pendants, for Toh-Atin Gallery in Durango. I was sent home with five of them, and was given complete freedom to create necklaces which I felt were appropriate for each piece. Here are some pictures >>----->

The wrap measures approximately  26" and can be wrapped around, on some, twice to be worn as a choker >>----->

For this pretty little turquoise and sterling silver piece I made a Pretty by JL Braid Necklace measuring approximately 16". 

It is in silks of >>-----> pale blue :: pale blue :: light grey >>----->

pale blue :: taupe :: black >>----->


Pretty by JL necklaces still have our trade mark fringe & flair that you've grown to love! Here is the back view of the above Pretty by JL Braid necklace >>----->
