A beautiful design executed flawlessly by this Navajo jeweler who is partial to the good-luck symbols of dragonflies and hummingbirds.
These earrings have a modern look, but the design elements and inspiration are traditional.
Stylized and polished silver hummingbirds and lightning arrows are applied over a darkened base of silver.
The inlaid domes of the tiny coral, onyx, and turquoise cabochons offer pops of color against the oxidized base and high-polished silver.
The birds stand out, literally and figuratively, from the darkened background, and the small round stones light up the silver palette. The hummingbirds look as if they are hovering in the air, looking for the next flower.
These earrings are both graceful and dramatic – a considerable feat. Those of you who already have one of Aaron’s hummingbird bracelets or rings might want to add these; you birders, hummer lovers, and lovers of unusual, beautifully made jewelry, will all love these earrings, too!
