Beautiful handmade vintage Zuni turquoise pettitpoint plants necklace and earrings set. The artist has created six (6) smaller turquoise pettitpoint plants that are encased inside a circular frame and three (3) larger circular frames with added turquoise. Each plant consists of seven (7) hand cut turquoise stones each set into very fine cut serrated bezels. The artist uses twisted wire for the plant stem and caps off the end with a silver drop. The six (6) smaller plants are encased inside a circular frame that consist of twisted wire along with repeat stamped smooth wire hoops. The three (3) larger plants have ten (10) added turquoise pettitpoint stones that encircle the plant with twisted wire inside and outside the turquoise along with the repeat stamped smooth wire around the outer rim. Each circular framed plant has jump rings precisely attached to the outside and connected to the next with a handmade chain link to follow the shape of the necklace. The artist completes the necklace by adding handmade “dot-n-dash” chains up both sides and including a handmade shepherds hook and double eye clasp. She also makes two (2) more of the smaller circular framed plants settings attaching each one to a single pettitpoint stone ear stud to complete the matching earrings. Beautiful vintage Zuni set!

The necklace measures 22” long end to end with a wearable length of 11 5/8” measured from the clasp down one side to the bottom of the larger center plant setting. The smaller circular plant settings measure 1” diameter with the larger ones being 1 3/8” diameter. The necklace weighs 43.7 grams (1.54 oz or 1.40 ozt) and is stamped STERLING and hand etched F. Etsate by the Zuni artist Frances Etsate. The matching earrings measures 1 15/16” tall by 1” across with the plant settings also being 1: diameter. They weigh 3.5 grams each (7 grams per pair) and are unsigned sterling silver. Very intricate and time consuming vintage Zuni turquoise pettitpoint plant decorated necklace and earrings set! $689.95
