Details

The striking diamond inlay design on this Zuni bracelet was made from a mix of genuine turquoise stone and real Tigers Eye. The intricate hand cut tiles of genuine golden brown Tigers Eye are tightly inlaid within the hand made Sterling Silver cuff. The stunning traditional Zuni motif is masterfully depicted in this exquisite inlay design. It's sure to get a lot of attention. This impressive hand made Zuni cuff bracelet measures 38" wide and is a size 6 1/2. Stamped with the Zuni artists initials RM. The Zuni Indians learned to silversmith from the Navajo in the early 1870's. The Zuni, because they had permanent homes unlike the nomadic Navajo, were able to use many tools that the Navajo could not easily carry with them. With the lapidary wheels they began cutting stones and using the silver to hold their stones in patterns. Today, Zuni silversmiths are known for their lapidary skills. Both channel inlay (using precisely cut stones set on silver to form figures and designs) and cluster and needlepoint (setting small, similarly cut stones in geometric patterns) are traditional Zuni styles.
