In Native American jewelry, cluster work is an extremely laborious process due to the time and skill required by the artisan to hand-cut their gemstones. Zuni artist, Jack Weekoty, (also spelled Weekooty) is known for his extraordinary cluster work.
This arranged cluster cuff is crafted in the traditional radial design and features over fifty-one matched cabochons. Acquired in the Southern region of Arizona, this vintage piece of wearable art showcases the unmatched lapidary skills of Jack Weekoty and will be an heirloom for generations.
Jack Weekoty (also spelled Weekooty) was a Zuni artist born in 1916. He produced jewelry from 1945-1975.
