Frank Vacit (1915-1999) was one of the most talented and recognized Zuni jewelers of his era. His career with inlay began in 1932 as he created jewelry for well-known Zuni Trader C.G. Wallace. He pioneered the channel inlay technique as well as creating pieces with mosaic inlay. He worked into the early 1960s and became a master of his craft.

This beautifully designed necklace, attributed to him, is a classic Vacit design. He has crafted this piece to display the Number 8 Turquoise and beveling each stone to add another dimension to the design. In addition to the main necklace this piece features, beautiful hand crafted silver link chain. A similar necklace is featured in the publication, author Gregory Schaaf, American Indian Jewelry I, pg. 49, under collectors section.

The central inlaid section measures 3 3/8 wide by 3 long, with the additional 1 1/2 long by 1 1/2 wide link top designs. The total length is 19 1/2 long and can be adjusted to a shorter length. Not hallmarked, which was common on Vacits early work.
