Torevia Crespin is well known for producing pieces of “wearable art”.  Often working with her husband, Delbert, she combines unique stones and shells in rich and bold patterns in creating large multi-color inlaid pieces.

This sensational necklace has three strands of jet beads enhanced with the gorgeous hues of the spiny oyster and turquoise. The ombre colors of the shells compliment the shades of soft turquoise in the pendant and the side tabs. The repetition of jet in the inlay work creates a link to the strands of jet beads.  This fabulous necklace will be a valuable addition to your collection of fine Native American jewelry.
