Beaded Squash Blossom DanglesBen P. Haley
Ben Haley is a fifth-generation silversmith.
He is the only son of Ruby Haley, who is famous for her beautiful and seamless silver bead necklaces. He is a very soft-spoken and kind-hearted man who lets his talent speak for itself.
That talent is evident in these beautifully fabricated, long beaded earrings.
The Haley family uses very traditional methods for crafting their silver beads. After dapping them (making them curved), they grind the silver beads on a rock and string them on a binder wire. After stringing the beads, they use Borax to clean them and then sand all the edges.
Each bead in these earrings is polished to a mirror finish and is a testament to just how fine a silversmith Ben is.
The long, tubular bead and squash blossom at the end of each earring adds length and appeal.
Traditional in execution, but with a modern feel, these earrings go with everything from jeans and a t-shirt to a cocktail dress.
Crafted by a master, whose lineage alone speaks for itself, and whose talent is undeniable, these are definitely a “must-have”!
