What is Needlepoint?
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.
The 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.
