Kewa Pueblo-WARREN NIETO-Whole Spiny Oyster Shell-Mosaic Inlay Turquoise Bolo :
UNISEX! If you ever wondered what Spiny Oyster looks like in it's natural form,this is it!!! It's name is given for obvious reasons! This fabulous looking Puebloan bolo tie is made by the hands of Kewa Pueblo artist "Warren Nieto"..Warren put his own artsy twist into this, while staying traditional when it comes to old school techniques.Made with the whole spiny shell where he mosaic inlaid round & oval cuts of Sleeping Beauty turquoise all along the top & then laid cuts of shimmery Mother of Pearl & black jet which lay along the perimeter & sit between the turquoise & shell. I love the tips on this & are designed to match the bolo..They are nice & thick & have as much going on as the top portion! Comes with a brown braided leather strap that is durable & has a locking mechanism on the back for adjustment,so you can wear this high or low! Perfect for men or women who love Pueblo pieces that have a southwestern/western WARREN NIETO- MADE EXCLUSIVELY FOR PLATA DE SANTA FE JEWELRYTRIBE: KEWA/SANTO DOMINGO PUEBLOMATERIALS: RAW/NATURAL SPINY OYSTER SHELL-SLEEPING BEAUTY TURQUOISE--BLACK JET-MOTHER OF PEARL-WOOD-LEATHERLENGTH: 40"(MEASURED ONE SIDE AT 20")SPINY OYSTER SIZE: 4" X 4-1/8"(MEASURED WITH THE OVERLAPPING SPINES THAT EXTEND OVER THE BASE OF THE SHELL)TIPS: 1-1/2" LONG X 1/2" WIDE X 3/4" DEPTHTECHNIQUE: HAND CUT MOSAIC INLAID MATERIALS-TIME & LOVE!WEIGHT: 128 GRAMS (4.6 OUNCES)BOLO LEATHER DIAMETER: ABOUT 5 MMLEATHER COLOR: DARK BROWNHALLMARK: WNCOMES READ BEFORE PURCHASINGI'm sorry,but unless the Bolo is defective,(which it isn't) there is now a 3% charge that will be taken out from the total price you paid,if there is return.This applies to buyer's remorse,too light,too heavy,don't like it,too big,too small,etc.This is one good reason why you should go over measurements before purchasing & read all the detail I provided you with & ask any questions/concerns you may have beforehand.
