In a style of jewelry not often seen, Zuni silversmith Valerie Comosona combines carved stone with sterling silver to create her stunning and unique pieces. This pin/pendant features a red spiny oyster stone carved and etched into a traditional maiden, featuring black color within some of the etched lines to create depth and character, as well as outline eye and mouth. The piece showcases a single turquoise dot just below the head, while the stone is set in a simple sterling silver bezel and the piece is finished with two sterling dots appliqued at the bottom. 2 1/2″ long including bail x 7/8″ wide. Pin is set vertically along the back of the piece.
