About Me

The DU'er formerly know as denbot, then known as puerco-bellies, and again known as denbot. I am the 3021st person to register on DU, so that makes me a dinosaur, with little better to do with my time then lurk, snark, and occasionally toss a little raw meat in to GD.

It's Navajo, "Old Pawn".

The bezels are hand made, so it probably predates the 70s. The cabachons are derived from small nuggets and hand shaped. The pattern is an overall squash blossom motif.

Im guessing from the matrix in the turquoise that it is from either the Kingman or Sleeping Beauty mines.

The setting is all silver, possibly coin silver 90%, and is done in the Navajo style. It looks copper like because of the red background.

Twisted wire is not a Zuni thing. The hallmark of Zuni is precise cut inlay stone.
