There's such an endless variety in slab earrings, I love it!
These bright and colorful mosaic looking earrings were made by Kewa (Santo Domingo) Artist Ronald Chavez.
The stones are turquoise nugget and orange spiny oyster shell combined with a binding agent / resin
that gives them a shimmery cooper/ gold matrix. It's made into a large rock from which these earrings were cut.
The stones are 1" long by just over 5/8" wide
Total weight: 5.5 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)
