Art Deco Black Lip Shell Earrings

By Eric Othole, Cochiti-Zuni

This offering is sold.
Eric Othole's all hand-fabricated sterling silver and black lip mother of pearl shell earrings feel like stained glass windows from the 1930's! The diamond shaped earring is divided into thirds and inlaid with black lip mother of pearl shell that catches the light and turns it into rainbows of color. Fringed with sterling silver dangles these vintage looking baubles are about 3" long including hooks, and 7/8" wide. The sterling silver has been patinated to a dark gunmetal gray. Signed by the artist.
