29" Clam, Sterling + Turquoise Jacla Necklace by Rodney Coriz - Rodney creates another one-of-a-kind piece with all the best of traditions and modern beauty! The graduated size heishi clam shells have two sterling barrels on the main 22" part of the necklace. A bale with its own wider barrel suspends two of the jaclas, with another masterful graduated size loop with three turquoise discs at their ends. This barrel has an almost teardrop shape Kingman turquoise stone in a modern smooth setting. This style is a traditional engagement necklace. The closure is also of handmade sterling silver, like all the findings.
Rodney Coriz is an exceptional young Santo Domingo jewelry artist who has combined two styles of creativity into his own. His inlay work is fantastic and his ability to work with natural stones to form smooth wearable pieces of art is well known. Rodney is a member of the Santo Domingo Pueblo. His life is about history, believing, and experiencing his culture. Rodney was inspired by his mother, Nestoria Coriz, and his grandfather, Lupe Pena.
Rodney easily grasped his Grandfather Lupe Pena's history and started to create art from seashell and stones. Rodney craved learning more and wanted to become a modern artist. He took metal smithing classes in January of 2002 at the Poeh Cultural Center. He has grown and developed into a world-class artist who has shown works at many museums, including the Heard and The Millicent Rogers Museum. Rodney Coriz is also featured in the book "Masters of Contemporary Indian Jewelry". Fine Native Indian Jewelry makers abound in the Coriz family. Daniel, Rodney, and Simon are all following in their parents and grand parents' tradition.
