There's such an endless variety in slab earrings, I love it!
These mosaic looking earrings were made by Kewa (Santo Domingo) Artist Ronald Chavez.
The stones are compressed nugget turquoise and compressed spiny oyster shell. They were infused
with a resin to hold them together and it gives them a shimmery cooper/ gold matrix.
The stones are 1 1/4" long by 3/4" wide
Total weight: 8.6 grams on my scale.
I placed a quarter there for scale
In 2009, Santo Domingo Pueblo's tribal council decided to change the pueblo's name back to the
ancestral name Kewa Pueblo (pronounced KEE-wah)
Sure to make a Fine addition to any collection, or a great gift!
