Zuni silversmiths are known for their tedious stone setting. This pair of inlay earrings exemplifies this distinguishing characteristic. Several pieces of gemstone and shell have been carefully inlaid to the sterling silver base, including: pink mussel shell, turquoise, red coral, mother of pearl, pen shell and jet. They are made by a Zuni artist, stamped Emma Bowekaty.|
A single Zuni turquoise earring measures, approximately: 1-1/2 in. by 9/16 in. (hanging).
