Lorraine Waatsa, Turquoise Cluster Dome Ring
Zuni artist Lorraine Waatsa makes gorgeous pieces of cluster art. She comes from a community of great artists and draws on that inspiration when it comes to creating her handmade work. Mary & Lee Weebothee made unique domed cluster pieces. Lorraine has been influenced by the design with this gorgeous long ring. In the center is a dome of beautiful blue Sleeping Beauty Turquoise cluster. It is surrounded by lots of silver, by Zuni standards, that includes crescent shaped cutouts, silver beads, and twist wire. The band is a comfortable narrow design that was made to be worn often. Lorraine makes beautiful things, this is just another example of one.
