Here is a top-quality Native American handmade sterling silver turquoise inlay ring, created by re-known Zuni silversmith and lapidarist Amy Wesley Quandelacy. The abstracted double hummingbird design for which Dickie and Amy Quandelacy have become known originated with Dickie's mother Ellen Quandelacy. While the two no longer work together, both Dickie and Amy continue to use the design.
This handsome inlay ring features an inlay of Sleeping Beauty turquoise with an open peekaboo area that is oxidized. The execution of this ring represents the amazing craftsmanship and skill of the Zuni lapidarists.
The face of the ring measures 5/8 inch tall by 1/2 inch wide. The shank is highly polished sterling silver. Weighs 9-1/2 grams approximately. Size 9 or 10 available. This ring works well for a man or a woman.
Brand new and in perfect condition. Gift box and Certificate of Authenticity included. Hallmarked Amy.
Amy has been producing jewelry since about 1976. She was formerly married to Dickie Quandelacy. She is known for this very distinctive inlaid style. You can read about this fine Zuni artist here: www.ohio.edu/museum/zuni/d_a_quandelacy.html
