Zuni artist Andrea Lonjose makes fascinating pieces of channel inlay. She was married to Randy Pinto at one time, who just happens to be the son of legendary Tewa artist Shirley Benn. You will notice the similarities in style, an etched stone set in a channel inlay style creating life like pieces. This pin was styled after the beautiful Eastern Blue Bird. This is the first bird we have seen from Andrea, and it is as good as any we have seen. She has used a combination of turquoise, shell, jet, and coral to create the stunning piece. The Blue Jay is getting ready to take flight from the piece of coral serving as the fall colored leaf. You will be impressed by the size and style, and it never hurts to have the Benn family represented in your Zuni inlay collection.
