Sleeping Beauty Turquoise Petit Point Earrings

The most traditional Zuni style of jewelry is called "petit point", which can be identified by tiny turquoise stones each supported in its own bezel, or metal "sleeve." It is an extremely time-consuming work and is very delicate in appearance. The Zunis are known for using sterling silver and natural turquoise from the Sleeping Beauty Mine. The work is priced by the amount of handiwork, not the weight of the silver or the value of the turquoise. We're lusting over Filmer Lalio's Sleeping Beauty turquoise petit point post earrings, about 1 1/4" long and 1" wide, with sterling silver.
