This necklace is so amazing and unusual, I just had to purchase it. At the time, I had no idea what it was I was buying but instinct told me it was something special. Indeed it was.

It comes from a very respected family of the Zuni Tribe out of New Mexico.

All skillfully hand made by Virgil Dishta Sr. & his wife Lena, signed V & L Dishta. Although the channel inlay is beautiful in and of itself, what makes it more unusual and yes, I will say rare, is the heart as a drop pendant.

Virgils' father, Frank Dishta is famous for creating this design called 'channel inlay' which is highly desired by many serious collectors around the world. "Channel Inlay" is now known as "The Dishta Style" design, carried on as a tradition throughout the whole Dishta family.

It's awesome to own a true piece of history.

Thanks, I hope you enjoy this.

    Thank you racer...love it too ;) I really need to go to the book store or library so that I can find more dependable information on the Dishta family. I've found a lot of it contradictory.

    Beautiful Zuni jewellery. Their silver and turquoise are superb. This is gorgeous, so delicate. I have a belt buckle, which was my mothers, bought in the '70s, made by Cheama. Very different style to this but also exquisite.

    Sorry Share that I missed this - right when I was traveling all month. Interesting that most our posts for favorite Native American only get the big love when items are signed.
