Georgia Sanchez of Kewa (Santo Domingo Pueblo) makes the most exquisite mosaic jewelry. Every piece of Turquoise, Spiney Oyster and Mother of Pearl is hand-cut and precisely inlaid into (not on top of) Black Jet. This process involves carving the design into the Jet for the placement of each small stone/shell. It is a painstaking process that results in stunning jewelry. Although the mosaic process is very old and is found in jewelry discovered in ancient cliff and pueblo sites, Georgia's designs are distinctly contemporary. She is a cousin to Kewa jeweler Eileen Rosetta.
These charming earrings measure 3/4" long by 5/8" wide at the bottom plus the 5/8" sterling silver hooks.
