Fun, and flawless, too, these earrings are a marvelous example of Dylan Poblano’s distinctive, contemporary style – and of his fine workmanship and wit.
Included in national museum shows before the age of 30, he is the third generation of notable Zuni artists, and each one was/is known for taking Zuni tradition beyond the expected.
Here, this multiple award winner has created a visual pun using the most traditional of materials, sterling silver.
He knotted sterling silver wires -by hand – and created dangles that resemble balls of twine.
With silver darkened into a matte finish, the earrings end with elegant teardrops of lustrous, wine-red, precious cuprite.
Lightweight on the ear, despite their length, these earrings are works of art: Creatively designed and visually stunning, comfortable, intriguing, and meticulously hand fabricated.
Dylan is celebrated for imaginative, sometimes quirky, always creative and well-executed, pieces – like these exceptional earrings.
With casual wear or fashion-forward designer wear, they will amuse and impress everyone, wherever in the world you wear them.
