Sterling Silver Earrings with Sleeping Beauty Turquoise & Red Coral - Southwestern Tribal Jewelry
These unique, southwestern style earrings feature uniquely textured sterling silver combined with Sleeping Beauty turquoise and fossilized red coral. They have a modern - yet tribal flair and will make a bold, striking statement. This turquoise originates from the Sleeping Beauty mine located in central Arizona, USA. This mine is known for producing high quality turquoise that is a stunning sky blue color - reminiscent of the lovely blue skies here in the American Southwest.
I designed the shapes; sawed them out of solid sterling silver sheet; and then created my own tribal inspired pattern by hand stamping and hammering the metal. The silver was given a charcoal patina and then buffed for an "Old World" satin finish.
MEASUREMENTS:Total length: 2-1/2” from top of sterling silver ear wires and 1-1/8” at widest point. They are signed on the back with my initials and sterling stamp.
