This vintage Pueblo necklace is made in the timeless jacla style. Crafted of hand-rolled turquoise with a pair of matching jaclas tipped in natural shell hanging from a unique turquoise disc-bead joining with tiny accenting red coral beads. This fabulous find wa rescued from old pawn in New Mexico.

Jacla is the Navajo word for “ear string”; although the style is attributed to the Rio Grande Pueblo Indians, they were commonly traded among tribes and have been seen in vintage photos being worn by both men and women of many southwestern tribes. In the original style, the bottom loops of a jacla were a pair of “earrings” that are tied to the necklace; before ears were pierced and earrings were worn in the lobes, they were fashioned into long loops that were worn over the entire ear.
