About

An absolutely stunning example of Zuni craftsmanship, this belt is an amazing piece of wearable art. The black leather belt is adorned with 8 conchas and 9 butterfly clusters, each containing unique, natural pieces of turquoise in a gorgeous variation of color. The turquoise is set in serrated bezels of sterling silver. Each round concha is 3" in diameter, and each butterfly cluster is 2 3/4" long, and 1 1/4" at its widest point (0.5" at it's most narrow). Each round concha has 35 stones, while each butterfly cluster has 15 stones. The belt is 40" long in total. Most likely from the 1970s.
