Zuni artists make fabulous pieces of inlay art and one of the favorite designs is a Thunderbird. This mythical bird is done in a classic mosaic style, stone against stone. Works of wearable art that incorporates their Zuni culture are always a little more fascinating. This necklace, ring and bracelet set is done in a classic combination of shells, jet, coral, and turquoise stones that are perfect matches. You will find the Thunderbirds hanging from handmade sterling silver beads and the oversized naja includes more incredible inlay. It is wonderful to have a matching set that shows your appreciation of Zuni art and culture. What a wonderful aged patina each piece shows off.
