Zuni Flower Pin
Definitely a luxury item, this! This Zuni flower pin comes from the Southwest Indian Foundation, an organization whose mission is to "lessen the poverty and unemployment among the Native Americans of the Southwest, specifically members of the Navajo, Zuni, Hopi, Laguna, Acoma, and Apache tribes." I received their catalog in the mail the other day, and they have lots of lovely merchandise. Many of the items are handmade.
In particular, this pin is made of turquoise set in sterling silver, and measures 2 inches in diameter. I tend to prefer silver to gold myself, so this is just to my taste.
What: Zuni Flower Pin
Where: Southwest Indian Foundation
How much (as of today's post): $59.00 (plus shipping)
