We regret that this item is not available at this time.
Handmade with exceptional artistry by a Zuni silversmith, this beautiful Zuni Sleeping Beauty Turquoise and Sterling Silver Feather Pin/Pendant is a gorgeous example of Zuni needlepoint lapidary work. Delicately hand-set with hand-shaped sky blue Sleeping Beauty turquoise, the graceful setting of this Feather Pin/Pendant is sterling silver. Handcrafted in the U.S.A. Naturally occurring turquoise and individually crafted sterling silver assures each pin/pendant is one-of-a-kind.
The “skystone” turquoise—like the stunning needlepoint Sleeping Beauty turquoise gems jeweling this Zuni Sleeping Beauty Turquoise and Sterling Silver Feather Pin/Pendant—has been mined by Native Americans since 1000 CE. Highly sought for its sky blue color and little-to-no veining, Sleeping Beauty turquoise comes from a now-closed Arizona mine of the same name. The extensive Zuni jewelry holdings of the National Museum of the American Indian include many beautiful examples of turquoise needlepoint lapidary work.
