This fabulous beaded necklace and earring set were designed and handcrafted by award wining Navajo artist Dennison Billy. I was pleased to be able to meet him at the Kewa (Santo Domingo) Arts & Crafts Market recently. Picture below.
This design "Two Gray Hills" is based on the Navajo rug pattern.
Hard to photograph but it lays beautifully when worn.
It's 30 inches long and the colors include blue, red, ivory and it's accented with lapis and heishi.
The earrings are 2 1/4" long.
I placed a quarter there for scale.
Sure to make a Fine addition to any collection, or a great gift! Please note: Pictures are enlarged to show detail, remember everything looks bigger on line :)
