This vintage Zuni silver and turquoise ring was made using two popular styles, Petit Point and Snake Eye.

Ring is a size 6 and measures 1/2" tall.

Though the Native American Tribes had been working with metal for generations, new and more precise silver working techniques were introduced in the 1800’s by artists from Mexico. As new techniques and tools were developed and shared across Native America, jewelry-makers began to achieve a much greater level of precision with their work.
