History of Zuni Jewelry

The Zuni Native American Indian Pueblo is located 32 miles southwest of Gallup, New Mexico. They have been known for making Needlepoint (tiny needle shaped stones), Petitpoint (tiny round, oval or square stones) and Turquoise Inlaid Jewelry since the early 20th century. The Zuni Indians mostly focus on stone cutting. They make simplistic silver pieces to accommodate their intricate stonework with fine and delicate turquoise and other gemstones. Zuni  artist have taken the art of jewelry to another level with their complex inlay channel designs, fine turquoise petit point as well as hand carved fetish jewelry. They have developed a unique look which can be easily spotted by collectors and jewelry connoisseurs alike.
