In the late 1800s a Navajo silversmith taught a Zuni artist, Lanyade, the art of jewelry making. It wouldn?t be silver that defined the Zuni silversmith, but instead his/her mastery of stone. Styles like inlay and small needlepoint have become what the Zuni artist is known for. Plus, they take the time to make small pieces of art that are very different from the large works of the Navajo. Zuni artist Iva Booqua made this beautiful necklace and earring set. All eleven cluster pieces are a combination of petit point and needlepoint stones, precision cuts of Sleeping Beauty Turquoise. You will be blown away by the way the rich sky blue stones radiate off the mirror shine of the sterling silver.
