Beautiful vintage Zuni malachite inlay teardrops necklace. The artist has used a total of thirteen (13) flush inlaid malachite teardrops to create this unique necklace. The focal point of the necklace displays eight (8) of the teardrops soldered together that form a sunburst, sunrise, or possibly a prayer feather fan along with a single teardrop that dangles from underneath. The artist continues using the teardrops by attaching two (2) to each side all connected by stationary soldered jump rings and hand made soldered chain links. The artist has attached dainty rope chains off the extended double teardrops and finishes with a signed tab and spring loaded clasp.

The necklace measures 22" end to end with a wearable length of 11 3/4" measured from the clasp down to the lowest teardrop on the focal point. The teardrop cluster focal point measures 1 7/8" by 1 5/8" across. The necklace weighs 17.2 grams and is hallmarked JOE on the clasp tab. Appears to be either sterling silver (92.5% silver) or possibly coin silver (90% silver). It has one little ding on one of the bottom teardrops, but doesn't take away from the necklace in any way. Beautiful malachite decorated necklace!  $99.95.
