Tri Level Needlepoint
Sleeping Beauty Turquoise
Stewart Nakatewa, Zuni, NM
Beautiful, 3 tier, graduated levels, each with more turquoise. The bottom includes (9) free-floating sterling silver "paddles". Very feminine and elegant. You see very little of this kind of work anymore, especially with Sleeping Beauty.
The earrings are laying flat for the photo; the paddles do dangle freely and evenly.
Remember to check the dimensions-the photos are extreme close-ups
