NEW! Beautiful Zuni high end turquoise inlay three tier chandelier earrings. The artist uses 33 pieces of inlaid turquoise to create each earring. All set into three (3) sections or tiers along with a row of six (6) diamond shaped silver spoons hanging from the bottom tier. The first tier has nine (9) stones with a twisted wire bar across the top and two (2) flat silver drops on each side. The second tier displays eleven (11) stones and the third tier has thirteen (13) stones. The top row of stones are round with the bottom row being teardrop shaped on all the tiers.

This style of inlay was originally made famous by Zuni mastercraftsman Frank Dishta back in early 1930's and the style has been known as "Dishta Style" in honor of his design.
