Handmade Native American vintage ring using the Zuni Snake Eyes and Petit Point techniques. Turquoise stones radiate from the center, accented with sterling silver. Due to the natural nature of turquoise, color of the stones range from true blue to a darker green. Approximately size 6.5.
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.
Please note that due to their delicate nature all of our vintage items are final sale.
