Zuni use an inlay process to design their creative jewelry.
Their silversmithing style will use triangle or rectangle shapes of cut turquoise, coral, or another stone/shell from a wafer sheet, cutting them into the exact shape they need for each individual area on the piece of jewelry. They will have the inlay design covering the entire piece of jewelry using a bezeling on top of a solid sterling silver back.
This Artistic American Indian art can be found in Necklaces, Pendants, Belt Buckles, Earrings, Bolo Ties, Rings, and some Money Clips.
