Zuni Silver Jewelry
The Zuni Indians are well known worldwide for their Zuni Silver Jewelry with exceptional stone work. The Zuni’s generally make three types of Silver Jewelry, Petit point, Needlepoint and Inlaid Silver Jewelry. Petit Point is where the Zuni’s hand cut tiny round, oval, square, rectangle or triangular gemstones and mount them in Sterling Silver Jewelry items such as Zuni Rings, Zuni Bracelets and Zuni Earrings. Needlepoint is much like Petit Point but the stones are cut in the shape of an eye of a needle and this is why they call the Zuni Silver Jewelry made with these stones Needlepoint. Zuni Inlay Silver Jewelry is where the Zuni’s make a piece of Silver Jewelry with channels and then hand cut individual gemstones to fit in these channels, Zuni Inlay Silver Jewelry as well as all Zuni Silver Jewelry is beautiful.
