This lovely old Zuni bracelet is known as "dots and dashes" for the alternating petit point and needlepoint cut turquoise stones. The stones have a slight variation in color which tells us they were never stabilized as the later petit points are. The color variation is quite slight and is better seen in the pictures than by the eye, in fact it is quite hard to see with the eye in regular lighting, but it dates this piece as pre 1980's when most of the petit point stones were stabilized to help them maintain their original color. Personally I like the slight variation but not everyone does.
Each stone is quite small and the smaller the stone the harder they are to cut and set. The bracelet itself is rather small as well. I have a 6" wrist and it fits perfect, but it can also be slightly adjusted.
Number of Stones: 33
Size of Bracelet: 5" end to end with a 1" opening by 1/2" wide.
Can be slightly adjusted
Weight: 14.3 grams
Gender: Female, Age Group: Adult, Color: Sterling/ Turquoise, Size: 1/2" wide
