This exquisite pendant was created by Zuni artists Sammy & Ester Guardian.
It features a Hummingbird design with mosaic inlays of blue turquoise, red coral,
black jet, yellow shell and shimmery abalone.
I showed it with a heishi necklace, NOT included, it's just to give you an idea.
Ignore any reflections in the silver.
It's unmarked sterling and signed S & E Guardian.
It's 2 1/2" tall by 1 1/2" at it's widest point.
Pendant weight: 13.6 grams on my scale.
I placed a quarter there for scale
