Zuni Jewelry: These designs are very tedious as each bezel (the silver holding the stone) is individually shaped and solder. Then the stones are cut, glued to matchsticks, then shaped and polished with a series of grinding wheel. In addition to these styles there is also the Zuni Inlay. This is the gathering of real stones (most often turquoise, coral, mother-of-pearl, and black jet) carved and assembled by hand to create a geometric pattern.
