Abalone and mother of pearl Zuni inlay pendant by Colin Coonsis
Zuni-made inlay pendant by artist Colin Coonsis, sterling silver with mother of pearl and shell inlay on both sides. One side has mother of pearl with brown shell inlay, the other side has mother of pearl and abalone shell inlay in various shades of black, white, and gray. Both sides are beautiful, and since the necklace can be worn two ways it's like buying two necklaces in one. This artist, Colin Coonsis, is known for his detailed and unusual inlay work. Hallmarked on the pendant bail.
The pendant measures 2 1/4" long and 1 3/8" wide. Pictured with a 24" sterling silver chain that can be included for an additional $40.
