It was stupid luck. A new shop opened in town and I noticed it had lots of Zuni items. Then I asked the owner about the jeweler and he said he as a Zuni trained silversmith. I had the jeweler make some earring for me and his work was really well done. Then he made me a hair pin. My husband found a pearl in an oyster he was eating (it looks like a dino egg ) but I wanted to have it set and he did a fantastic job.meladori|1486695818|4126883 said:it looks so vibrant! I love the bright yellow. how did you find your jeweler?
I live in the south but he traveled all over teaching. I am very envious of your learning to sliver smith!stracci2000|1486866642|4127650 said:Wow, what a great looking pendant!
Vesper, are you in New Mexico, by chance?
Many years ago, I was taught silver smithing by a woman from Zuni Pueblo.
I live in NM and know many native jewelers who do impressive work.
