Zuni silversmiths are known for their fine lapidary skills and intricate inlay work. This Knifewing Dancer is an example of this work at its best. Circa 1940-50s, this cuff bracelet and earrings exhibit stone-to-stone hand inlay set in sterling. The bezels are serrated and the bracelet wings are embellished by sterling rain drops with some additional stamp work. Sterling hard coiled rope accents the bracelet headdress.

The bracelet shank is split between two smooth surfaces with light stamp work and a single hard coiled rope. On either side of the Knife Wing figure, the bracelet has applied stamped sterling forms that take on an infinity symbol like shape.

Bracelet unmarked, tested sterling, measures 1-1/2" wide in front, 1-1/4" opening, approximately 6-1/2" circumference, earrings screwbacks marked sterling, measure 7/8" by 3/4". Bracelet has 2 mother pearl inlays that have small clefts on an edge otherwise in excellent condition.
