Alvin Hughte Zuni Sleeping Beauty Turquoise Petit Point Sterling Hoop Earrings
The petit point technique requires finely honed stonework skills. The turquoise pieces are very small and can easily fracture during the honing and polishing process. Each jewelry artist has created their own method of forging these small pieces and once mastered, will typically sit and create hundreds of the polished stones all at once in preparation for creating a finished piece. The petit point technique requires the highest level of skill to achieve success. Petit point has been made possible by finer tools that allow for extremely delicate stone carving. The very nature of the shape, as well as the number of cuts necessary to achieve the correct shape, requires a great amount of patience and skill. Because of the difficulty in crafting petit point cabochons, certain mines of turquoise are more popular to be used. These include sleeping beauty, lone mountain and spider web. The turquoise is set in a foundation of sterling silver. Beauty of sterling silver is it can become dark and can be polished back to a bright shine time after time.
