Dainty and delightful, these dangle earrings are also colored in the traditional Zuni palette of turquoise, red coral, white mother of pearl, and jet.
A top award-winning jeweler, Don creates avidly collected pieces of flawless inlay, with transitional designs that are both traditional and modern – and altogether beautiful.
With precise technique, the inlaid, little heads shimmer, raised against the glittering sterling silver that frames them.
Mother of pearl, red coral, clear blue turquoise, and jet – all natural – comprise the features.
A long, gracefully tapered and slender silver cone dangles from the tops, ending in an inlaid red coral knob.
More Sleeping Beauty turquoise is inlaid in the shape of tapered squares, matching the form of the silver. Silver filaments separate each stone.
The inlaid turquoise is placed to the side of the silver cones, so that it is visible when the earrings are worn – a masterful detail.
Strong in shimmering color, design and impact, these earrings are fastidious in workmanship, refined, and beautifully delicate, as well.
A superb example of this fine artist’s work; flattering and fun to wear, as well.
