Size Guide
Grandmother Pin, Mother Pin or a Cluster Pin - whatever you want to call it, it always makes an impression.

Handcrafted by Zuni silversmith, Vernon Wallace, this grandmother pin features two rings of petit point turquoise stones radiating out from the key center stone.  Add this to your scarf, hat, or handbag...or better yet, gift it to a “mom-to-be!”

History: In traditional Navajo & Zuni cluster pins, the center stone is said to symbolize the matriarch of the family. She is the center of the home with all of the other family members and their families radiating outward.
