Point or Needle Point ?
are two similar techniques of using very small pieces of stone to decorate a piece
and they are often confused.
Point is comprised of long , narrow teardrop-shaped stones, like the Sun God
pendant and earrings at right.
Point is comprised of straight, long, narrow stones that are pointed on both
ends, like the pendant and bracelet set at left.
God's Eye, often at the center of the Sunface, is traditionally made of turquoise,
jet, Mother of Pearl, and coral. It represents the all-seeing.
