Please see photo #2 - you can wear this as a pendant or pin/brooch. Painstakingly all handmade in the very labor-intensive mosaic inlay style of jewelry design by Zuni artist LYNNETTE LAIWAKETE. Please see photo #2 for artist's personal hallmark. Please note: the pawn shop/trading post where I obtained this from put their artist-identifying sticker on this but if you look closely (at my photo) you can clearly see the artist's personal hallmark just below the pawn shop's i. Artist's hallmark reads: STERLING L LAIWAKETE ZUNI.
