Delicate Zuni Needlepoint Turquoise Squash Blossom Set
A Zuni artist created this stunning Needlepoint Squash Blossom set. It has 148 little pieces of genuine Sleeping Beauty Turquoise and is accented with tiny silver beads. The starflower shapes are attached by a double strand of sterling silver beads. The bottom horseshoe-shaped piece is called a Naja. It is a good luck symbol borrowed from the Moors’ culture of Spain. The Zuni Indians of New Mexico are known for their ability to hand cut tiny stone pieces and bezel set them in beautiful patterns. The Zuni's attention to detail and expert craftsmanship makes their jewelry desirable all over the world. Matching earrings are included.
