This is a beautiful small cluster pin of Zuni petit point natural sky blue turquoise made before hallmarks were common. Each piece of petit-point turquoise is hand shaped, polished and set in a serrated bezel with tiny handmade silver beads, commonly called raindrops, on each end of the star. There are seven tiny round stones in the center surrounded by hand twisted wire framing. The dark aged patina of the silver contrasts with the beautiful color variations of the natural turquoise. This is a classic Zuni piece of jewelry that is perfect to wear alone or in a cluster.
Provenance: Remained in the same family since purchased in Santa Fe.
