Zuni jewelry artists have specialized in lapidary work. They create amazing pieces of art, and many times those pieces are filled with very small cuts of stones. This style is referred to as needlepoint and captures the admiring attention of collectors from around the world. Zuni artist Iva Booqua specializes in this difficult style of jewelry. First, she has to make these perfect cuts of turquoise, then bezel them after that she has to carefully solder them into the final cluster design. An amazing talent that creates a magnificent work of wearable art. 19.5 grams
