Members of the Chavez Family from Zuni Pueblo have been making these pin & pendant combinations for a few decades. We used to sell these in our store in the French Quarter of New Orleans. That was a decade before Katrina spit us out and sent us wandering like Odysseus. It wasn't Dena who made them back then, but it was another family member.
This is an eight-pointed star. Probably it's a snowflake. It's simple and lovely and can be worn as a pin or pendant. Pin it on a Kangol beret or wear it on a leather cord; it's a winner either way.
Hallmarked DC and marked Zuni.
