Description
 
Lee and Mary are considered, two of the most accomplished silversmiths in the history of Zuni arts. They started working together in the late 1940's, with Lee doing the silver work and Mary doing the stone cutting.

This beautifully designed cluster pendant offers the best of their work, with meticulously matched natural spider webbed Lone Mountain turquoise. 27 perfectly cut stones are placed in a gorgeous 14K gold cluster, with an added 7 stones at the end of gold dangles. A handcrafted gold chain adds the final touch to this great necklace. The total chain length is 20" long. The pendant measures 2 1/4" diameter with an added 2 3/8" drop dangles. Hallmarked, Lee/Mary, 14K on the back of the pendant with a gold attached tag on the chain, hallmarked Lee/Mary.

Their work is published in Zuni Jewelry, the Art and the People, Vol 1 & 2, by Barbara and Ed Bell. Theda Bassman, Northland Publishing Company, Treasures of the Zuni.
