Snake Eye Turquoise Ring, Vintage Zuni Turquoise Ring made of 10 “snake eye” stones of Sleeping Beauty turquoise set in sterling silver. The emphasis on small stone work and inlay work began to emerge in the 1920s, developing partly from a revival of prehistoric designs. The Zuni have long been masters of the lapidary arts. The Zuni Native Americans were creating bead jewelry and fancy shell pendants with mosaic stone inlay on them even in ancient times. Until about 1920, the Zuni fashioned jewelry primarily for themselves and other native peoples. By 1930, the Zuni were creating much of their jewelry for tourists. Within ten years, jewelry making had become a major source of revenue for Zuni artists. The pueblo of Zuni Native American Indians is located in western New Mexico (south of Gallup) near the Arizona border. Today, jewelry-making is the major craft industry of the village.
