Zuni Indian Bracelets

From salvaging metal from old kettles for jewelry, to the masterful inlay and needlepoint bracelets and cuffs of today, the Indians of Zuni Pueblos have moved easily from primitive hand stamping on found metals to museum quality, highly collectible jewelry without missing a step!

Although the Zuni didn’t start developing their Silversmithing skills until the late 19th century, their style and expertise is a true legacy of Silver and stone.The emphasis on small stone work and inlay work began to emerge in the 1920s, developing partly from continued experience and the Zuni ‘s own sense of tradition and culture. The skill that is required of the Native American artisan to create and complete an inlaid bracelet or cuff is astonishing! These precision Inlaid Cuffs are a treat to see and a treasure to own.

The excellence continues with the appearance of needlepoint or petit point cuffs and bracelets. Strongly associated with the Zuni jewelry making tradition, this style of cuff requires hours of perfect stones meeting perfect mountings! The hours of intensive stone setting and creative design culminates in museum quality, handmade jewelry that is in a class by itself.
