Very nice vintage sand cast sterling silver yei pin by Navajo artist Frances Jones. Jones started smithing when she was 14 years old and as a 5th generation silversmith she carries on the family tradition of sand casting. This little zigzag figural brooch is a great example of her earlier work.
Condition: Very good with some natural patina. Personal preferences vary greatly for the amount of patina on vintage jewelry, therefore I tend to sell jewelry "as found" and leave polishing up to the new owner.
Size: The pin is just over 1 3/4" long and is 3/4" wide at the arms.
