Spiral Sleeping Beauty Turquoise Petit Point Earrings

By Joanne Cheama

This offering is sold.
Joanne Cheama's Sleeping Beauty turquoise earrings spiral down like ribbons. Incredibly this earring pair is all hand-fabricated in the petit point jewelry tradition of Zuni Pueblo. Each stone and each sterling silver bezel is hand-cut, an incredibly laborious and time-consuming process. This pair of earrings are just large enough to make a statement but not so large as to take over an outfit, measuring at about 2 1/4" long, with a ribbon width of  1/4" wide and a spiral inner diameter of about 1/2" across.
