The artist has said, “To the Hopi, water plays an important part of daily life. As dry farmers, we rely on annual rain and snowfall to benefit our crops and orchards.”
He is also partly Quechan, a tribe on the equally arid, Arizona/California border, so his interest in water and environmental issues is very understandable.
These dangle earrings represent clouds and rainfall, very good luck in the dry desert lands, in a beguiling abstract and modern style.
Brushed and textured silver create a nice contrast, with the tiny lines in the textured part symbolizing the rainfall.
Cleanly made, and creatively designed, these are flattering and easy on the ear.
We welcome emerging artists, and even though Jonah has “emerged” we are happy to have his fine work.
You will be, too!
