Lupe Lovato Kingman Turquoise Graduated Disk Bead Necklace

Lupe Lovato is a Santo Domingo Pueblo jeweler who is best-known for his gorgeous necklaces of handmade beads. We have been offering his pieces at since 2002. His beads are well-known for their smooth transition in size. His sister, Irene Lovato, also makes fine, handmade necklaces.

These are gorgeous hand-turned, graduated disk beads of stabilized blue Kingman turquoise strung on beadalon (nylon-sleeved braided stainless steel wire). These are the largest, fattest disk beads that Lupe makes. It takes a lot of rough rock turquoise to make a necklace this length and made up of beads with such a large diameter. In the center of the necklace, spacer beads of fine-diameter heishi function to keep the beads from binding and allow them to "round out" properly in the front of the necklace. This is a perfectly graduated, smooth strand of masterfully made beads of gorgeous blue Kingman turquoise richly mottled with brown and black matrix.

Kingman beads: 1/4" to 1" diameter; 1/16" to 1/8" running length

Length: 29"
