Wilton and Carol Niiha-Zuni Multi-Stone Squash Necklace
Zuni artists Wilton & Carol Niiha make stunning pieces of inlay art. Their work is done in a mosaic style. This necklace is a combination of mother of pearl shell, Acoma jet, coral, and turquoise. When you look at the large bottom piece you think of a kaleidoscope with all of the different colors and patterns. The bottom large pendants hangs from a double strand of sterling made beads. You will find ten complementing pieces, five on each side, that have been decorated with the same color pattern as the pendant. A blossom has been set to each end and gives the necklace a traditional style. The Niihas have surrounded their magnificent mosaic inlay with a simple twisted silver border that finishes the piece nicely.
