Renowned Zuni silversmith J. S. Bellson creates stunning needle point jewelry pieces. Turquoise stone is cut into fine slivers that are pointed at each end to create needle point stones. The stones are mounted side by side in a cluster for a given design. The needle point stones are sawtooth bezel set in a continuous grouping. The brooch offered shows a delicate tree branch design in turquoise at the brooch center. The branch gracefully bends to the side. At the branch end a twist of silver work extends to the center left. Attached to the twist is a solid silver tag. A tiny tree branch is chased into the silver tag. The branches are enclosed with two bands of twisted silver work. Additionally the branches are surrounded with a circular row of needle point turquoise stones. The turquoise circle is finished at the outer rim with silver bead work. All turquoise stones are sawtooth bezel set. Finished beautifully on the back. Exquisite craftsmanship. Attachment is a brooch clasp and a pendant loop on the back. Secure locking brooch clasp.
