About Zuni

Beautiful, high quality Zuni jewelry made by expert Native American artists is great for those who want to stand out above the crowd. The necklaces, pendants, bracelets, and rings are usually made of silver, with precious stones like turquoise, lapis lazuli, onyx, and carnelian. Coral and mother of pearl are also popular. Coral is the skeleton of an undersea animal called a coral polyp, and it is a pink, red, or peach color. Mother of pearl is the iridescent inner lining of shells like abalone and oyster. Zuni necklaces sometimes have beads that are carved into animal shapes called fetishes. Delicate inlay work with angular shapes and patterns appears often in Zuni jewelry. Zuni artists sometimes provide their expertise for artists of other tribes. For example, some Navajo bracelets have Zuni inlay work. The Zuni have been making jewelry for hundreds of years, and vintage Zuni jewelry is very popular. The bright colors used look great with spring and summer dresses and shirts. You can use convenient shipping offering by the reliable sellers on eBay to help you find the best Zuni necklace, bracelet, or ring for you.
