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. You will find a variety of pieces done in mosaic inlay, needlepoint, channel inlay and pettipoint by Zuni artists. This pair of pierced earrings is made by Zuni artist Calvert Lamy and is a magnificent piece. The style of this type of stonework is often referred to as snake eyes. Thirty-eight snake eye cuts of Sleeping Beauty Turquoise fill the each earring. Calvert adds small sterling silver drops between the stones to complete the look.
