Vintage Turquoise & Coral Jaclas
A traditional Pueblo jewelry adornment, a jacla is two loops of heishi that were originally worn as earrings and sometimes fastened to the bottom of a stone necklace as a pendant-like attachment. They are seen in vintage photos being worn by members of all southwest tribes, both men and women. In the oldest style necklaces, the jacla is worn on the bottom of a long necklace, but modern fashion also calls for wearing them as a choker!
