Artist: Eldrick & Charlotte Seoutewa - Zuni Pueblo,  New Mexico, USA

Nice dark lapis with pyrite inclusions.  I apologize for the photography. It is very hard for a poor photographer such as myself to do dark blues and purples justice

The Seoutewas work mostly in inlay and petit-point.  I picked up quite a few of dainty pieces this year at Indian Market because they are handmade and executed with greater precision than some of the less expensive "shop" version on the similar designs. They are mostly using Kingman turquoise now due to the extreme expense associated with what is left of Sleeping Beauty.

A large amount of Zuni work is unsigned and un-hallmarked but the Seoutewa's do both on almost everything

Nice people and active in their Pueblo community affairs.

Remember to check the dimensions-the photos are extreme close-ups 
The photos are often MUCH larger than the actual piece
