These Santo Domingo hand made drop earrings are inlaid on a foundation of jet employing a variety of colors and materials - turquoise, apple coral, MOP, and black jet. The free-swinging earrings are suspended from sterling silver hooks.
The earrings measure 1-5/8" long, not counting the french hooks, by 3/4" wide. The light-weight earrings weigh 2.3 grams.
Chaslyn Crespin is the daughter of Delbert and Torrivia Crespin and lives at Santo Domingo Pueblo. It is readily apparent from her work that she learned to do mosaic inlay work from her parents, particularly Delbert Crespin.
