Size Guide
A work of art and a little piece of history.

"During the Great Depression of the 1930s, Native American artists often used scrap materials including 78 rpm phonograph records, car battery casings (hard rubber), and red plastic dinnerware such as Dairy Queen spoons. This collectible, museum-quality tab necklace is a great example of Depression Era jewelry." (courtesy Horsekeeping, LLC)

This long, dainty vintage necklace dates back to the 1930-40s. It’s a very unusual piece, featuring six slender tabs of mosaic inlay, crafted using resourceful materials, like battery casing and gypsum, as well as tiny pieces of turquoise that in more prosperous times might have been discarded. It’s stunning, yet subtle -- a perfect piece for layering!
