About The Covered Wagon Pin

Commonly referred to as Prairie Schooners, covered wagons represented a cultural icon of settlers traveling west across the United States.   They were also called Conestoga wagons.

Lincoln Zunie's channel inlay work is distinctly hand-made.  The cells cradling each cut stone or shell have a little personality, as they are not perfectly uniform, almost rendering a little attitude !
