Torevia & Delbert CrespinTorevia and her husband Delbert Crespin live at Santo Domingo Pueblo with their family. They are famous for their multi color necklaces and large  inlaid pieces. Torevia's brother Pula Calabaza was one of the first at Santo Domingo to start making this pattern of chokers. She is the youngest in that family. The materials used in their necklaces are:   jet (black), pipestone (brown), Melo shell (white or orange), spiny oyster shell (dark orange or red) turquoise and anything green is usually serpentine or turquoise.
Do to the handmade nature of bead work, all bead sizes are approximate. Santo Domingo's do not use         calipers - work is sized by eye.
