An especially talented Zuni lapidary artist cut and shaped multiple pieces of turquoise and set them in four curvilinear sections. Each section has two small cabochons and two silver drops set on an oxidized background. The sections swirl around each other and have small silver drops set as accents on the edge forming a pendant. The pendant hangs from a post with two small turquoise snake eyes. They date from the late 20th Century and are unsigned.


Condition: The Fancy Zuni Snake Eye Earrings with Oxidized Background are in excellent condition.

Provenance: from a Southwest Indian Jewelry collector in Colorado
