When I was a little kid, I watched my Dad do stuff like this. He could fix anything! I guess I just took his lead.You have a gift in a couple of senses. Not only can you find the beauty in broken items (which turn out to be real treasures) but you can also fix them to good as new. I'm glad you rescued it, looks great!
Omg so beautiful! If it was sold in Albuquerque this could be Pueblo Indian, you could literally try calling the shop and seeing if they could identify it for you.I bought this broken necklace at a yard sale on Friday for $1.00....whaaa? Are people crazy?
It's probably Navajo, but I'm not
I couldn't wait to take it home and fix it. The chain was broken so I had to solder it back together, then restring. It turned out great!
The location listed on the box is about 3 miles from where I live here in Albuquerque!Omg so beautiful! If it was sold in Albuquerque this could be Pueblo Indian, you could literally try calling the shop and seeing if they could identify it for you.
What an amazing beautiful piece, I‘m so glad it’s in a good home.
So cool. I also lived in ABQ (NE part of town) but I’m not an expert, just a fan of SW vintage jewelry. And a fan of New Mexico in general. Enjoy!!The location listed on the box is about 3 miles from where I live here in Albuquerque!
I looked for it, but the shop is no longer there.
Mostly Navajos make this kind of hollow bead necklace. The Pueblos (there are 19 Pueblos here in New Mexico!) each have traditional jewelry styles.
Because it is not signed in any way, I cannot rule out Pueblo made. So you could be right about that!
I'm so happy to have it. I have worn it a bunch of times already!
