Unique pair of earrings, likely Santo Domingo but since they're not signed we call them Southwestern, that feature a portion of spiny oyster shell with pale orange and creamy white striation, and then shaped and laid on top are geometric pieces of turquoise with black matrix and a band of white catlinite and black onyx. Light yet big, these are the perfect statement earrings for wearing all day if you wish.

This channel inlay ring is absolutely gorgeous. The combination of gemstones creates a mosaic that is so striking, so stand-out, and on a large and thick ring face, is the ultimate statement ring. Signed by Navajo silversmith Phyllis A Smith, the ring is made with Tiger Eye and just enough turquoise and black onyx to stand out against the golden brown palette. The stones are laid into sections in a process called "channel inlay." Channel inlay is complex--the artist cuts the stones precisely to fit the shapes, and the result is a beautiful mosaic of rectangles and squares. This ring is especially striking as the channel inlay is set off by a silver foundation that includes a scalloped border that functions as a frame--albeit one for a ring and not a painting.

Photos do not do justice to this amazing cuff bracelet. I've only ever had one like it before, and that one paled in comparison. And about that one, which was less impressive than this, I said I had never seen a cuff like it! Well, ditto that and then some. The triple wire shank holds three rows of shadowbox teardrops, almost pear shaped if you're holding them a certain direction. the top (or bottom, but I'm going to call it the top) row is coral, and at the ends of the tear drops are three raindrops. Next row is Mother of Pearl. And the next row is turquoise. All of the round cabochons sit in sawtooth bezels. The backdrop is highly oxidized, creating a shadowbox effect. One of the Mother of Pearl cabs has a divot in it, like a chip, although I think it may have been that way originally. otherwise the cabs are in good condition. The piece I had like this before was signed in dremel by a Zuni Indian duo Andrea and Shirley Lonjose (ALS) who also affiliated with the next door pueblo of Acoma. This piece has a dremel mark with letters that could be ALS. I see an A, but the other letters are scratched out. Because of the similarity of the pieces, I did want to include that information, in the event they are from the same artist duo. Zuni and Acoma Pueblos are relatively close to one another, and even to this day there are Native Americans who are registered with one tribal nation yet have a father or mother from another tribal nation and thus affiliate with more than one tribe. There is a great deal of tarnish on this piece. I have lightly polished the front, only enough to create more contrast between the oxidized backs of the teardrops--which we absolutely want to maintain as it creates depth and drama and is supposed to be oxidized--but I have not touched the underside. The reason is, that tarnish indicates that this piece is quite old. I estimate it to be 1950s to 1960s.
