This offering is sold.
Sandra Quandelacy's reversible turquoise corn maiden and Grandmother earrings hang at about 2 1/8" long including earring fixture, and are 1/2" wide. On the corn maiden side we see rows of corn representing fertility. Her hair is up in whorls indicating that she has not had children. She is embellished with a tiny inlaid red coral dot. On the reverse side we see a Grandmother wrapped in her shawl. Her hair is up in whorls too, indicating she has not had children but has mothered many. She wears a red coral embellishment as well. Sandra incised star elements too. The faces of these women are incised and darkened with jet.
