Ex Harmsen Collection, founders of Jolly Rancher Candy. The bulk of the Harmsen Collection resides in the Denver Art Museum, with a dedicated area for important Western art. "Jocla" is the Navajo word for "ear string." It is sometimes also spelled "jacla" or "joclah." The Navajo and Pueblo natives would often wear all their jewelry for safekeeping on their person. So their extra "ear strings" or earrings, where often tied to the bottom of their necklaces. Later, this evolved into a necklace style.
