Vintage jewelry from Tribal Nations in New Meixco.
Mosaics, the third type of Zuni inlay, are also fashioned from tiny pieces of stone, and shells. Known also as stone to stone inlay, they feature colorful components that fit together on silver backings directly, without silver channels between them, however. These pieces, naturally, require the most exacting craftsmanship of all. Since the Zunis believe that animate and inanimate objects alike have spirits, their mosaics, like some of their channel work, often depict traditional animals or objects.
Inside the band, there is a faint signature and is sourced by reputable experts here in New Mexico.
Please note that due to their delicate nature all of our vintage items are final sale.
