A handsome design, beautifully executed by this Navajo jeweler who is partial to the traditional Pueblo good-luck symbols of dragonflies and hummingbirds.
The birds stand out, literally and figuratively, from the darkened background, and the raised, rounded bar of natural spiderweb turquoise livens up the silver palette.
The hummingbirds look as if they are hovering in the air, sipping nectar from a flower.
The delicately elongated beaks, wings and bodies dominate the vertical shapes of the flowers.
The background is textured in tiny, vertical lines, like rainfall, another important good luck symbol in the high desert.
The slightly elongated, oval form of the earrings is echoed in the delicate curves of the wings, head, flowers and leaves.
These earrings are graceful and delicate, but also assertive – a considerable feat.
Birders, hummer lovers, and lovers of unusual, beautifully made jewelry will all love these earrings, too.
Lovely design, expertly made, with a pretty stone, and a wonderful price – what’s not to love?
