Sandcast Kingman Turquoise Navajo Earrings
These beautiful sandcast sterling silver earrings are hand crafted by the talented Navajo artists Eva and Lindberg Billah. Two beautiful blue Kingman Turquoise stones are set in the center of the flower shaped sterling silver that has an oxidized patina with a soft sheen and a brushed look. These earrings have shapes and swirls that have an “Old World” appearance.
Sandcast jewelry is made with a generous amount of sterling silver and has a high-quality feel and weight. It is a labor-intensive process that involves many steps and is truly an authentic, traditional style that is admired worldwide and highly collectible. The design is carved into a sandstone mold and filled with molten silver. When cooled it is shaped, finished by hand, and oxidized. This is an original one-of-a-kind piece handmade in New Mexico by Navajo artists Eva and Linberg Billah.
Hallmarked "EL Billah" and stamped "Sterling".
