This beautifully handcrafted collectible piece is created by native Zuni artists Porfilio and Ann Sheyka.
The unique process has been passed down within the family of Ann Sheyka. Ann learned by observing her mother, then later teaching her husband, Porfilio. Using their own designs, Ann creates the silver and stone work, and Porfilio assists with each piece. A unique feature of their jewelry is the manner in which the stones have been etched after they were inlaid into the piece. Porfilio has since passed away, but they had been creating jewelry since 1961.
Can be worn as either a pin or a pendant.
Ann Sheyka's signature is on the back of this piece.
