Artist: Timothy Bailon, Ke-Wa - Santo Domingo Pueblo - New Mexico, USA - Native American Jewelry
Description: Pretty multi-inlay stone earrings with silver-colored wave abstract inset into each earring. Timothy does really beautiful and unique work that is a combination of metal and stone work. I've only seen one other artist do anything similar and I'm not sure if they are related. In any case, he sells very little outside of local shows, unless you are unlikely to come across his work very often
Please read the information at the link below about the metals & materials used by Timothy.
Purchased directly from artist.
Metal: All of the metal in these earrings is magnetic so I'm going to guess none of it is sterling.
Materials: Turquoise (blue), Serpentine (green), and Jet (black). Each earring is backed by a slab of orange Coral.
Total Drop (from ear): 2-1/2"H
Earring (Only) Height x Width x Depth: 1-7/8"H x 3/4"W x 1/4"D
Signed: No, not unusual for Ke-Wa work
Hallmarked: No, not unusual for Ke-Wa work (See above for more details) I don't think the metal is silver
Repeatable Design: One-of-a-kind - See Artist's page for other available similar work.
