A skilled lapidary artist fashioned a flower made from tiny pieces of turquoise which were then set in handmade sawtooth bezels in this pair of Zuni needlepoint earrings. A delicate twisted wire hoop with five dangles is suspended from the flower. The handmade silver dangles give these earrings a whimsical feel. The earrings hang from a French hook and date from the 1950s or 60s.

Provenance: From a gentleman Southwest Indian Jewelry collector living in Colorado
