Necklace Earrings Yatsattie Zuni Needlepoint Sleeping Beauty Turquoise Sterling
The needlepoint 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 needlepoint technique requires the highest level of skill to achieve success. Needlepoint has been made possible by finer tools that allow for extremely delicate stone carving. Needlepoint requires thinly sliced cabochons which are very thin. 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 needlepoint 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 be polished back to a bright shine time after time.
