Coral and turquoise pin by Felicita Eustace, Cochiti
A nicely done small brooch by Cochiti Pueblo artist, Felicita Eustace. Felicita often carved her stones and she did that for this piece – the turquoise is carved in a leaf form and she left the coral slightly rough, giving it some extra personality. The stones and solid silverwork make a satisfying piece. The brooch measures 1 1/4″ x just over 7/8.” The piece is signed.
