Zuni inlaid bolo ties are a type of jewelry made by Zuni artists from the Zuni Pueblo in New Mexico, United States. The Zuni people have a long history of creating exquisite inlaid jewelry, known for its intricate stone work and precise craftsmanship. A bolo tie is a necktie consisting of a cord or braided leather with an ornamental clasp, known as a bolo slide, at the front. Zuni artists often incorporate their signature inlay technique into the design of bolo ties. Inlay involves setting small, precisely cut pieces of stones, such as turquoise, coral, shell, or jet, into a base material, typically silver. Zuni inlaid bolo ties are highly sought after by collectors and enthusiasts for their beauty, fine detail, and cultural significance. Each piece is unique and reflects the artist's individual style and creativity. Zuni jewelry, including bolo ties, often incorporates traditional symbols and motifs, such as the Sunface, Thunderbird, or various animal designs. Signed by Zuni artist, Bernice Leekity and Zuni, NM.
