Got a knifewing pendant marked H.Iule. It’s heavy for its size. Also a turquoise pendant. It’s marked handmade on reverse and another word that is possibly sterling. I think the stone looks Zuni but someone suggested the setting looks more Navajo. Thoughts?
Lucky finds! As you know I’m sure, Horace Iule is a very collectible early Zuni smith.
About the turquoise single-stone pendant, it could be Zuni lapidary work in a Navajo setting, i.e., a collaborative piece.
That makes sense. Thanks.
