Paula says -

"This is a very unusual eyecatching petit point design. The oxidized black backround really sets off the clear turquoise stones and coral pieces. In excellent vintage condition.

What is Petit Point?

There are two similar techniques of using very small pieces of stone to decorate a piece and they are often confused.

Petit Point is comprised of long , narrow teardrop-shaped stones that have one rounded end and one more pointed end.

Needle Point is comprised of straight, long, narrow stones that are pointed on both ends.

Native American Jewelry Blog tips and iinformationThe San Diego Collection

San Diego Pawn CollectionThe items in the San Diego Collection came from an estate collection of a California widower. His wife had collected Native American jewelry during the 1960s - 1980s and was particularly fond of Navajo Squash Blossom necklaces and Santo Domingo stone and heishi necklaces. She also had a very nice collection of bracelets, some of which were made by artists whose work is now highly collectible.

Why isn't this item called Native American?

The US Department of the Interior Indian Arts and Crafts Act of 1990 and its recent Amendments require that items described as Native American or Indian be made by an enrolled member of a federally recognized tribe. Furthermore, government regulations suggest that all attributions include the Native American Indian's name, tribe and federal tribal enrollment number. Because it is impossible to identify the artist for many vintage items, even if they are authentic Indian made items, we cannot and will not use the words Native American or Indian in association with such pieces.
