Description
 
These lovely dangle earring are Zuni work. Set with hand cut black jet, set in smooth bezels. Hand crafted links are securely attached allowing the lovely jet circles to hang beautifully. The earrings measure 3 1/4" long, with the top portion measuring 3/8" in diameter and the bottom portion, measuring 5/8" in diameter. They have sterling screw backs. Note: the pictures show light reflection on the jet, but each circle is a deep solid black, with a nice shine.

Zuni jewelry both inlay and cluster work, are obviously some of the most difficult to create. Along with this work being very time consuming, the artist must master not only silversmithing, buy lapidary (stone cutting). Our respect for the many Zuni artist goes without question, as they are truly a gifted people.
