Star Wars Series Post EarringsL. Eugene Nelson
An artist known for truly unique design and precision of workmanship; this pin/pendant is one of his newest designs.
Trained as an architectural draughtsman, that engineering sensibility is seen in the meticulous proportions and scale of all his pieces.
Every single element, however small, is constructed by his hand.
Part of the artist’s Star Wars series, these beautifully constructed earrings are intriguing for the combination of classic shape and singular design.
Almost like a collage, the individual elements are carefully composed and applied to the silver base.
All the elements are set into a well-proportioned frame of sterling silver, against a background of darkened silver, that makes them stand out with beautiful precision.
The natural red coral is set into textured 14 karat gold, which picks up the warmth of the red.
Small gold domes carry the design harmoniously around the composition.
One brilliant blue turquoise adds a bright accent: the combination of turquoise and coral is ancient and traditional.
The earth is symbolized by coral, and the heavens by turquoise.
Chic and contemporary – even futuristic – these posts actually maintain revered Navajo tradition.
Exceptional earrings that are meant to be worn today, tomorrow and for years – always attracting admiration.
