Zuni Sleeping Beauty Turquoise and Sterling Silver Needlepoint Dangle Earrings
Item #42310
We regret that this item is not available at this time.
Handmade with extraordinary delicacy, these Zuni Sleeping Beauty Turquoise and Sterling Silver Needlepoint Dangle Earrings present bezel-set “needle points” of Sleeping Beauty turquoise in a beautiful stylized floral motif. Zuni silversmith Iva Booqua has completed her design by painstakingly appliquéing silver dots to the end of each petal of these beautiful earrings. Handcrafted in the U.S.A. Naturally occurring turquoise and individually crafted sterling silver settings assure each earring is one-of-a-kind.
The Sleeping Beauty turquoise jeweling these Zuni Sleeping Beauty Turquoise and Sterling Silver Needlepoint Dangle Earrings is 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 needlepoint style of setting several small stones in individual bezels (often around a larger stone) is especially popular with Zuni silversmiths. Our National Museum of the American Indian includes Zuni jewelry with turquoise needlepoint designs.
