Lots of pride & love is obviously poured into this. To hand cut each stone, down to the exact millimeter & shape, is something not everyone can do & will be the main thing you will notice about this & is much more obvious in darker stone, cluster work, if the artist is off. The pin/pendant is actually made of ONE piece of sterling, that has been'cut-out', with lots of time spent, filing between each & every section. The Afghanistan Lapis is a deep, rich blue & is made with a'flush-inlay technique, where the stone is'shaved' down to the height if the bezel.
This is a real keeper, that is made by one of the best from the Zuni Pueblo! The last photos is a pair of earrings listed by this husband & wife duo.
