The silver is manipulated to a free-form shape that ends in the stepped rain design. the wavy curve of one side represents flowing water and/or clouds. Both are the ultimate good luck in the desert, but wait…water must be balanced with sunlight to produce a thriving harvest, so there are 14-karat gold circles to complete the partnership. These sun symbols are lightly brushed, to accord with the hammered rustication of the silver.
Not your usual Native earrings, these are a typically intriguing, contemporary design from this multiple award-winning jeweler, whose inspiration is steeped in tradition. And, they look fabulous on!
