SET - Earrings (Wire) & Pendant (with chain)
TB - Zuni Pueblo, New Mexico, USA
Native American Indian Jewelry
Really pretty, dainty set I picked up in Zuni pueblo in 2011 (it's probably Sleeping Beauty as that is what was available and used back then). Very lightweight, the silver is curved. The chain is non-native, likely Italian or Korean. I'm not sure who "TB" is.
I had several sets of this design. I sold one with turquoise immediately in a face-to-face purchase. I have another in imitation opal, yet to be photographed and posted.
I'm forcing myself to "dig in" and start pulling out, photographing, and posting items that have been buried for years. Who knew when I left things sitting that they would "get better" but, this is one of those It is brand new, not pre-owned.
