This exquisite natural turquoise petit point necklace with matching earrings by Joyce Eriacho was generously donated to the foundation by a longtime friend of Keshi. This type of petit point is called "snake eye" because of the shape of the stones and is very rarely made now in Zuni Pueblo. The silver and stone work is classic Zuni and entirely done by hand. Each tiny silver housing is cut out, sawed, and soldered into place and then each individual stone is shaped for each particular bezel. Even the silver links on the chain are hand made. The chain itself has 3 repeating turquoise snake eye rows on each side. The length of the chain on each side is 9 1/2 inches long, with the centerpiece hanging down another 1 3/4 inches. The length of the necklace is adjustable. The earrings measure 1 3/4 inches long. A signed piece.  $500.  Free shipping.
