When we talk about fine Zuni needlepoint a few prominent names pop up. Among those is Hugh Bowekaty, a long time Zuni silversmith. Hugh is known for his excellent, stout turquoise needlepoint, definitive points and hearty bulk. His silverwork is excellent, quite refined. Creating dozens and hundreds of handcut turquoise to fit is equally fine bezels, Hugh is well rounded in Zuni silverwork, and famous as a result.
Here you have a Squashblossom by Hugh Bowekaty, with his hallmark. Clip earrings (can convert) are included. The set was made circa 1975 and is in MINT condition, with patina.
