This internationally acclaimed Native flute maker describes his equally well-made jewelry as “Contemporary designs from a place of Tradition” .
These lovely earrings fulfill that claim, beautifully, with a gleaming design of silver repousse forms.
Like a bow of silky fabric, or a sheaf of plants, the mirrored motifs are slightly curved, and very handsome.
The workmanship is fastidious, as one might expect from a musical instrument-maker, so every little point, and convex shape is perfect.
Native tradition is suggested: the shape of the earrings reminds us of designs on Plains parfleche bags, and other paraphernalia of the artist’s heritage.
However, the suggestion is subtle, and the earrings can be admired for their graceful fluidity of forms, and resemblance to ribbons and bows, as well.
Feminine and flattering, these are marvelously fabricated, and beautifully designed.
These are easy to wear every day; they will easily become a signature item and will amortize rapidly.
