Each of the pieces in this Sunface Zuni Inlay Concho Belt is inlaid with Sleeping Beauty Turquoise, Black Onyx, Mother of Pearl and red Italian or Mediterranean Coral. Native American Jewelry artisan Abel Soseeah connected each of the conchos with nice heavy gauge handmade Sterling Silver jump rings. The end of the belt was finished off in a unique way, a series of 9 key rings were used so that more could be added on or taken off and the belt could be extended.
