Close up view of the matching earrings - completes the set.This mid-century necklace and earring set was constructed in the traditional Zuni Pueblo petit point style. A very skilled Zuni Pueblo artisan cut and shaped multiple small nuggets of turquoise and set them in tiny saw-tooth bezels. The necklace consists of five sections, connected by handmade links. Each section has a series of silver diamond dangles hanging from the bottom. The balance and symmetry of the necklace are classic Zuni elegance. The matching earrings feature even smaller pieces of turquoise set in petit point style with a small half flower motif dangling by a handmade link from an upper flower. The earrings are a perfect match to the necklace.
