  Beautiful well made vintage Navajo/Hopi Spiral of Life silver overlay with garnet bead earrings! Each earring consists of the tribal symbol of life or "spiral of life" which displays the spiral overlaid onto an oxidized silver base. The artist has added what appears to be a garnet stone bead that hangs from the earring.

Each earring measures 3/8" diameter and including the bead is 1/2" tall. They weigh approximately 1.2 grams each (2.4 grams for a set). They are unsigned Sterling Silver earring studs. Not sure if Navajo, Hopi, or Mexican, but sure it's from one of the affiliations? The spiral was made popular in the Native jewelry community by Kenneth Begay, Allen Kee, and others in the 50's-70's during their work at the White Hogan Company. Beautifully styled and crafted earrings!  $29.95
