This incredibly detailed Eagle Dancer ring is a wonderful example of traditional Zuni channel & stone-to-stone inlay jewelry, created by well-known Zuni artist, Madeline Beyuka. Sections of the inlay are carved to create additional dimension.
Madeline has been creating mosiac inlay style jewelry since the 1950's. Madeline was married at one time to the late Zuni silversmith, Eddie A. Beyuka, and did the lapidary work for him. After their divorce, she continued on her own and did the silver work and lapidary work herself. Her favorite designs are the olla maiden and this eagle dancer.
The dancer measures 2 long and 1-3/8 wide. The ring weighs 15.3 grams. Size 8.
Brand new and in perfect condition. Hallmarked by the artist, Madeline Beyuka. Gift Box and Certificate of Authenticity included with your purchase.
