These lovely earrings were made by Navajo Artist Lyle Piaso. The Sierra Nevada
turquoise stones are a wonderful bluish with a hint of matrix. I love the border being
etched like that.
They are marked sterling and signed.
They are 3/4" long by 9/16" at their widest point.
Total weight: 6.1 grams on my scale.
I placed a quarter there for scale
Lyle is a third generation Navajo silversmith, originally from Albuquerque, New Mexico. He attended Chinle High School in Chinle, Arizona. He went on to attend the Community College in Tsaile, Arizona. After earning his degree in accounting, Lyle moved back to Albuquerque. Upon returning to New Mexico, Lyle began to silversmith along side his father Joe Piaso Jr., who has continued to inspire him over the years.
Sure to make a Fine addition to any collection, or a great gift!
