Description Zuni Inlay Pendant Sterling Bead Necklace
Notes This is a really beautiful Zuni pendant intricately inlaid with bezel set stones including coral, black & white onyx, 3 types of turquoise (including spider web)and sugalite in a stylized sunburst-type pattern (the stone inlaid portion of the pendant measures 1' tall x 9/16' wide). The pendant, including the sterling, measures 1-1/2' tall x 1-1/16' wide, not counting the large bail (with the bail it is 2' tall). The inside bail measurements are 1/2' tall x 3/8'. The sterling in the bail and around the inlay has a darkened background with pointed (like star points) raised designs with a shiny finish. It is substantial--25 grams of sterling. The 18' necklace weighs 15 grams, and has long oval beads with 2 small flattened circle beads between each. It has a very slightly darkened shiny finish. It is fastened with a sterling hook type clasp. The pendant is signed on the back: Fiolino, Sterling, Bani Collection (with the trademark sign) and then etched in writing is Lorraine Long. This piece dates from around 1985, and was originally purchased by me in Santa Fe, NM during an Indian Market.
