Zuni Maiden Ring
This Zuni Maiden ring was made by Zuni Artist Joyce Waseta. It's a size 7 and has inlays of blue turquoise, white mother of pearl, black jet and red coral. At the time of this listing I have matching earrings.
Joyce is the daughter of Theresa Waseta, who is now deceased. Joyce learned her craft from her mother and has been creating her own version of the Zuni Indian maiden for many years.
The Wasetas have been featured in several books about traditional Zuni jewelry.
This ring actually came from a shop that was closing, so while it's new they were made a while ago. This is new old stock and hasn't been cleaned. You're getting a classic, well made ring.
It's unmarked sterling silver and etched J Wasteta.
It measures just over 1 5/8" tall by just over 1/2" wide.
weight: 5.6 grams on my scale.
I placed a quarter there for scale
