Description
 
This lovely collar necklace is hand fabricated Zuni work. It is set with 152 hand cut natural, turquoise stones that are carefully set in fine saw tooth bezels. The stones have a wonderful aged color change. This necklace is dated to the 1950's, does not have a maker's mark, but the age, design and exquisite work could only be done by an early master. Note the tiny, tiny silver drops between each stone and the stamped silver drops at each end section. Beautifully crafted. There is an etched traders code on the back.

The teardrop sections measure 1 1/8" to 1 1/4", long by 7/8" wide. The other bow tie sections measure 1 1/4" long by 5/8" wide. The bottom center TD is 1 3/8" long by 7/8" wide. The earrings measure 1 5/8" long by 3/4" wide, with sterling screw backs. The total necklace length measures 17 1/2" long, which includes a handmade link chain with tiny stamped silver raindrops. The chain allows for your desired length. The earring can be made into posts upon request.
