NEW! Large Zuni thirty eight (38) stone turquoise flower chandelier earrings. The artist has created these beautiful earrings using thirty eight (38) round and teardrop cut pieces of blue turquoise with brown and tan matrix. Each stone is set into fine cut serrated bezels. They start by creating a large flower using eight (8) teardrop cut stones and a single round stone in center wrapped with twisted wire. Each of the eight (8) stone pedals has a silver drop added to the tip. The artist then attaches a bib of five (5) round stones with a strap of twisted wire above and a silver drop between the stones at bottom. They finish each earring by attaching five (5) turquoise filled spoons that dangle from the bib adding the ear stud in the center of the back of the flower.

Each earring measures 2 11/16" by 1 1/4" across. They weigh 11.8 grams each (23.6 grams for the set) and are hallmarked RLB by noted Zuni husband and wife Robert and Bernice Leekya. The Leekya's have been producing since the 1950's and are known for their large nugget jewelry. We've had many pieces of theirs over the years, mainly large men's rings and watchbands, but this is the first pair of earrings we've had or seen. They will become collectible in the future if they aren't already!  $329.95
