A fairly new artist for us, and a very good one, too.
These dangles are beautifully made, look wonderful, are easy to wear, and are quite individual.
Not just handsome and well-made, by hand, these stamped squares are also whimsical, and really fun.
Precise stamping covers a symmetrical square of sterling silver (say that fast, three times!)
A plump ram is overlaid on top, in a recognizable, but abstract depiction.
Its fleece is shown by texture that covers even the horns of the ram, but not its gleaming legs. A star shape shimmers above.
The sheep and star are oxidized silver that looks a bit like gold, or bronze, for more contrast.
The reverse is decorated with a finely chiseled sunburst design, so there is really no “wrong” side.
Creative and amusing design, these earrings pay homage to sheep, a mainstay of traditional Navajo life: Sheep give meat, and fleece that turns into the famed Navajo weavings.
Abstract in design from a distance, these flattering earrings will invite delighted surprises when viewed close-up.
