Little things make a big difference. It always adds interesting character to a piece of turquoise when you see unique grooves through the piece. Zuni artists give their stones these carved looks and it always looks great. These 22 turquoise nuggets are gorgeous pieces of Kingman Turquoise and a handful reveal that signature Zuni carve. All of the beautiful stones are set into sandcast silver creations. The Zuni traditions are drawn from their planting crops culture and you will notice how the design of the necklace is done in a corn design. Everything has been strung on handmade silver beads. Iule and Leekity are Zuni names that are known for sandcast jewelry. This piece does not have a hallmark but those are names you can research.  289.5 grams
