Here is one of our finest Tony Aguilar pieces! This elegant necklace exhibits so much of the technique that makes Tony’s work so great – a flare for ornate Middle Eastern designs in the long, hand-stamped barrel beads holding exquisite strands of spiny oyster and sterling silver beads. 

Sterling silver barrel beads hold 8 strands of spiny oyster round beads. Interspersed on each of these strands are elongated sterling silver ribbed beads, as well as smaller sterling silver beads for accents. The upper section of the necklace consists of sterling silver hand stamped Navajo pearl beads of graduated sizes. The ends are sterling silver cone beads stamped with TA – Tony Aguilar’s hallmark.

Condition: Excellent- original condition
Provenance: Acquired from a private collector in New Mexico
