What is a Jacla?

Originally, the jacla was a pair of heishi earrings that were tied onto the necklace, as much for storage as decoration. Later, loops of heishi specific for this purpose were tied onto the lower center of the stone necklace. A variation of this is a Jacla with vertical slab or chunk stones at the center or a layered disc with bead loops hanging from the disc. Read more about jaclas.

Why isn't this item called Native American?

The US Department of the Interior Indian Arts and Crafts Act of 1990 and its recent Amendments require that items described as Native American or Indian be made by an enrolled member of a federally recognized tribe. Furthermore, government regulations suggest that all attributions include the Native American Indian's name, tribe and federal tribal enrollment number. Because it is impossible to identify the artist for many vintage items, even if they are authentic Indian made items, we cannot and will not use the words Native American or Indian in association with such pieces.
