Acclaimed for his impressionistic paintings, as much as he has been honored for his beautiful jewelry, Teddy Draper Jr. is also a community leader, advocate for Native artists, and dedicated basketball coach – and, son of a heroic, Navajo Code Talker.
This gorgeous pair of clip earrings combines a classy design with a high-grade set of Lapis (look at that Pyrite!!) cabochons set in sterling silver.
The magnificence of materials, design, and workmanship are all the result of this multi-talented artist’s skill, experience, and artistry.
Teddy has taken these beauties to another level by inlaying smaller cuts of Lapis around the bottom half of each earring, an elegant complement to the overall design.
This fabulous earring pair is a wonderful combination of luxurious materials, outstanding skill, and a well-thought-out design that highlights the exceptional stones…and yes, they can be converted to posts as well!!
These are a new classic, a future heirloom that you will enjoy endlessly, created by a major figure in Native arts!
