This sweet little heart pendant is handmade by Zuni artist Angelena Laathy. Beautiful Turquoise, Red Coral, Mother of Pearl, and Jet are inlaid into Sterling Silver to form this unique asymmetrical design.
Zuni Jewelry makers are well known for their inlay work in which stones and shells are cut and shaped to fit perfectly side by side to form a desired pattern.
Angelena is the daughter of the late Morris and Sadie Laathy, two very well known Zuni jewelry makers. Having learned from two of the best, Angelena has developed an amazing style and technique.
