Late 1800's Ingot Silver Earrings of drawn wire by unknown Pueblo artist

SavvyCollector.com

We call these dramatic Spanish Colonial influence Pueblo earrings "the Sisters". 

Fabricated, using coin silver ingot-drawn wire and hammer stretched sheet, the artist spared no detail.  Each bezel is cut with a decorative edge.  Curved wire work flanks the central body with its triangular turquoise stone--one of four deep blue to green in each pendant.  Flattened wire twists and a miniature squash blossom suspend from each earring like fringe from the hem of a skirt.  

Pendants are approximately 2 1/4" length X 11/16" to 13/16" width.  The wire adds 1/2" for a total 2 3/4" length.
