Zuni artists who work in the traditional cluster style make magnificent pieces of jewelry. You can tell the difference between Navajo work and Zuni cluster by the attention to detail. You will notice that Zuni pieces focus on the stone and repetition of style. On the other hand Navajo pieces will focus on the silver work with lots of silver design around the stone and stamping. The simple Zuni look is admired by all who see it and it just has an unmatched elegant finish. Zuni artist Lorraine Waatsa made this stunning turquoise cluster pair of pierced earrings. She is the daughter of the late Alice Quam and has continued the rich tradition of quality work associated with her mother and grandparents, the Ondelacys. Rich blue stones with twisted wire and silver drops best describe these incredible earrings.
