The most traditional Zuni style of jewelry is called petit point, which can be identified by tiny stones, or in this case red coral pieces, each supported in its own bezel, or metal "sleeve." It is an extremely time-consuming work and is very delicate in appearance.
Cheryl Johnson honors the petit point jewelry technique in these elaborately gorgeous 3 1/2" long and 1" wide precious red coral petit point earrings, for pierced ears. They are ultra fashionable, have an alluring movement and are attractive to the eye. Signed by the artist.
