Handcrafted by Zuni Pueblo artists Bobby and Corrine Shack, this watch draws upon the Zuni legacy of superior silver and lapidary work. The piece features handcrafted watch tips made the channel inlay style of jewelry making where blue turquoise, white mother of pearl, coral and black jet gemstones have been cut and inlaid into sterling silver to form a beautiful Thunderbird design.
Channel inlay, a traditional Native American jewelry technique, creates beautiful geometric designs, and this pendant features a Sunface with rays that stream outward, reminiscent of a floral design. With sterling silver accents along the scalloped border, this piece is a beautiful representation of traditional artistry, and a distinctive addition to your collection.
Watch face and stretchy band are commercially made, while the watch tips are handcrafted. Watch tips measure1-1/2" wide with large stretch band.

We record the place and date of each purchase and pride ourselves in paying a fair price that allows artists to make a living practicing their craft.
