About

An absolutely stunning example of Native American Zuni craftsmanship, this oversize belt is an amazing piece of wearable art. The black leather belt is adorned with 5 conchas and 5 butterfly clusters, each containing unique, natural pieces of turquoise. The turquoise is set in serrated bezels of sterling silver. Each round concha is 6" in diameter, and each butterfly cluster is 6" long, and 3" at its widest point (1 3/4" at it's most narrow). The belt is 50" long in total. Most likely from the 1970s.
