Description
 
Alice Quam began jewelry making in the mid 1940's. In the 1960's she began using a hallmark. Her skills as both a stone cutter and silversmith are those of a master. Her cluster Zuni jewelry quickly became collectable, as each piece was done with amazing precision. Her use of high quality materials, both in the turquoise and coral she chose for her pieces were also a hallmark of her exquisite work.

This beautiful cluster, link concho belt is set with 282 vivid Natural Morenci turquoise stones. There are tiny flecks of pyrite in the few areas of matrix. The turquoise in this belt came from our family and the rough material was sold to Alice and other silversmith in Zuni. A fine silver twist wire and perfectly placed silver raindrops add the final touches to this gorgeous piece. Hallmarked with her A. Q. dating it to the 1960's or later. Can be worn through belt loops or on top of any clothing. Just gorgeous on!!

The buckle measures 2 1/4" by 1 1/2", with the concho's measuring 2" with a 1 1/4". The length is 36", including the 1 1/4" silver hoops. More silver hoops can be added upon request.
