Bold heavy vintage Zuni nine (9) stone carved turquoise nugget cluster sandcast belt buckle. The silversmith created a heavy sandcast oval silver plate and formed a slight curvature prior to adding the decoration. She mounted nine (9) carved and polished blue-green turquoise nuggets that sport brown matrix with some heavy signs of silvery pyrite. Each turquoise nugget is set into a custom made serrated bezel with a large silver drop separating each nugget from the next. The artist also includes a nice handmade silver leaf along the bottom on one side. She finishes decorating by chiseling a half moon on top and bottom with crescent moons flanking on both sides of the half moons. The artist finishes the heavy buckle by attaching a swivel type belt clasp and solid set pin on the back side.

The belt buckle measures 2 3/16” by 3 1/4” across and weighs a hefty 100 grams (3.53 oz or 3.21 ozt). It’s hallmarked ANGIE C - ZUNI by Zuni artist Angelita Cheama (b.1932-) She began producing in 1952. Bold heavy turquoise sandcast belt buckle! They just don’t make them like this anymore! $439.95
