Mary Louise Tafoya is a wonderful jeweler from Kewa Pueblo in New Mexico. She made these earrings in the traditional mosaic inlay method of Kewa Pueblo jewelers. The stones are inlaid onto jet which is a very light stone. The stones inlaid onto the jet are serpentine, applie coral, lapis, gaspeite, and turquoise. They are strung on sterling silver wires.
Size: 2" H x .25" W
Jewelry by Mary Louise Tafoya is both very traditional and very different from anyone else's. Using the traditional Kewa Pueblo mosaic inlay method, she puts the stones and shells together in a way that seems very modern. They are their own little art pieces!
