Contemporary Zuni bracelets combine master craftsmanship with quality materials. The choice of craftsmanship includes cluster, petit-point, needle point, inlay – both channel and ‘stone-on-stone’ and the remarkable ‘snake eyes’ comprised of small rounded dots of turquoise or coral. There are several types of Zuni bracelet designs.
