Sally Yazzie is a Navajo silversmith who makes beautiful needlepoint cluster jewelry in the style of the Zuni Pueblo jewelry makers. Long ago the Navajo did more cluster work, but the folks at Zuni Pueblo more or less appropriated it as their specialty and stock in trade. Sally is very good at what she does and uses the finest coral, shell and stone in her pieces.
This round cluster of deep purple spiny oyster shows perfect symmetry. These are set with ovals surrounding the center rounds; 18 cut pieces of spiny oyster in all.
