Details

This vintage handmade Zuni cluster bracelet features FORTY-THREE natural turquoise stones is a STUNNER. The photo's DO NOT DO THIS PIECE JUSTICE!! They simply do not show the beautiful polish and ZAT that each stone carries. The silver wires are hand-pulled and the bracelet is quite heavy. I have looked at many bracelets displayed in a case and when I held it in my hand it was much lighter than expected. THIS IS NOT THE CASE WITH THIS HIGH QUALITY PIECE. Each of the 43 turquoise was painstakingly cut, shaped and polished to evoke an image of a flower head. The turquoise stones are all natural and show a bit of color change due to age. Imagine the skill and patience the artist has to create such a beautiful piece of jewelry. We purchased this wonderful bracelet along with 40 additional pieces (see image below) from an important California private collection. We will be listing them as soon as possible on auction or as a buy it now so keep checking back. This week we have 3 additional pieces from this collection also on auction.
