Lupita Calabaza Pectin Shell Channel Inlay Mosaic Pendant

Many members of the extended Calabaza family from Santo Domingo Pueblo are jewelrymakers. Lupita's specialty is mosaic channel inlay work on shell. In this instance, she used a combination of hand-cut tiles with bands of Sterling to inlay a diagonal mosaic design on this orange pectin shell. The pendant hangs from a Sterling bale and is free-swinging; allowing it natural motion with the body's movements.

Pectin shell: 1 7/8" across; 2" up & down

Mosaic tiles: Kingman turquoise, apple coral, jet & red abalone

Diameter of bale's opening: 7/16" (8 mm.)

Total hang: 2 7/8"
