When someone mentions Navajo jewelry big and heavy silver pieces come to mind. The same is not true at the mention of Zuni, because you begin to think of detailed lapidary pieces that will wear very comfortably and lite. Every Zuni artist has a certain style to their work, and even though certain artists do nothing but inlay or needlepoint work you can still tell them apart. One of the ways the Zuni artist master their style is by doing the same thing over and over. It is very common to see this style of necklace, it seems to be done by many of the Zuni silversmiths. Mildred Ukestine loves to create small needlepoint clusters. This necklace comes with a beautiful matching earring.
