Only a very skilled Zuni Pueblo lapidary artist could have shaved turquoise into such thin pieces as used in this pair of earrings.  The silver and needlepoint turquoise earrings are very light and dainty in appearance.  Each earring has five silver dangles. They are not signed with the name of the artist, which is a shame as he or she should get credit for such elegant work.

Condition: original condition

Provenance: these Zuni Pueblo Silver and Needlepoint Turquoise Earrings are from the collection of a client
