Artist/Source: Supersmith Shop (David Rosales) - Handcrafted by Navajo Jewelers New Mexico, USA
Description: Lovely earrings. The ER307 has the stone combination on one side and sterling silver on the reverse. The "Shalako" stone combination is probably my most popular. I have had customers use the silver side but would only suggest doing so if you have long hair to cover the back of the earring.
In the world of Native American jewelry, the Super Smith Shop was originator of a complete line of repeatable designs that could be customized with a large selection of stone combinations. All Supersmith jewelry is created by a large staff of Navajo craftspeople. I love that they make it easy by numbering the designs and naming the stone combinations; this makes mixing and matching easier.
While not entirely one-of-a-kind this system is the perfect answer for my "matchy-matchy" customers who like quality inlay work. If I happen to be out of a matching piece, just ask, the beauty of this line is things can be reordered. It is important to note each piece will be different so you are not going to get and exact match on the inlay design.
I get very frustrated trying to take good photos of my Supersmith earrings. These are so pretty when worn. The opal shimmers and accents the turquoise and sugilite, the latter of which is dark but not as dark as the photos indicate. The difference in color between the two is a function of the angle of the lighting.
