The necklace is 27" long x 2.75 tall x .5" deep. The matching cuff bracelet features a butterfly flanked on either side by coral and turquoise flowers. It measures 1.60" tall by 2.75" wide. Made to fit up to a 7" wrist Necklace signed A. Rosita Wallace, Zuni. The matching bracelet is not signed. Both pieces come from a collector who bought them together. Biography from Zuni Collection: Rosita Wallace's mosaic inlay style gives her work a delicate look, but the fine quality of her settings make her creations lasting treasures. Rosita created her butterflies in the 1970's, and worked with her ex-husband, Anselm Wallace (See "Zuni: The Art and The People," Vol 2, Page 14). She has become one of the best-known and most widely recognized Zuni artist today. Rosita's work is also published in "Zuni Jewelry," by Theda and Michael Bassman, among others. Rosita left this world in February, 2012.
