Necklace, Squash Blossom, Bib, Vintage, Zuni, 672


Zuni inlay work is fast becoming Southwest jewelry collector's genre of choice.  
We believe this fabulous bib necklace to be the work of Zuni artist, Milton Lasiloo.  Featuring a large inlaid Sun Face motif, supported by two matching Sun Face clusters, all crafted in the traditional inlay technique using intricately cut turquoise, coral, mother of pearl and jet stones.  The main face is framed with silver wire rope and coral "snake eye" stones and bordered with turquoise petit point stones tipped with sterling silver drops.  Charming silver leaves/feathers dangle from a multi-stone bar and add extra movement and just the right amount of sparkle.
History:  The sun Face represents the Zuni deity, Sun Father.  Associated with warmth and life, the Sun makes life and growth possible, brings good fortune and prosperity to families and is believed to bring playfulness and joy to children.
