9. Notice on the original the twisted wire seems to be the dominant feature?

The twisted wire is prominent over all and again that is not something indicative of Zuni work. To me the telling portion is that on the second piece look at how the stones are more uniform, and are well shaped.

On the first, the stones are more or less following their original natural nugget form. That is more Navajo like.

But hey, what do I know. I’m just Chiricahua Apache, and have made a living collecting, making, and selling Native American Jewelry, including at “The Show”, Santa Fe Indian Market.

That being said I’ll bow to your whitesplaining to me.
