I have a piece I know is made by Joe Delgarito since it shows the stylized D and the copyright. But the piece also shows initials ALV. I can’t find any information on Joe Delgarito except to identify the hallmark. With the copyright symbol, I am wondering if Joe Delgarito runs a silver shop and the true artist is ALV? If so, who is ALV? Also, the things suspended are a corn plant and a cross, but is the other one a pine cone? Like a Pinon Pine cone? I know that the Native Americans in the southwest used the pine nuts for food. Can anyone help? Thanks.
