These ornate earrings by Navajo silversmith Lorena Nez feature various sizes of appliqued sterling silver dots along an oxidized sterling surface shaped as a butterfly. The center of each earring is set with round genuine turquoise stones. The borders of each wing are appliqued with smaller sterling raindrop beads and half circles, and each butterfly is finished with thin sterling wires coiled at the top, creating antennae. The butterflies dangle from turquoise studded posts.
The earrings measure almost 2 long and weigh 7 grams each. The butterflies measure 1-1/4 inch wide by 1 inch tall.
Brand new and in perfect condition. Gift box and Certificate of Authenticity included. Hallmarked by the artist, Lorena Nez, wife of Johnathan Nez.
