Dead Pawn~Silver~Hopi Overlay Style~Cornstalk Earrings~Signed Buck

Artist: Signed: Buck
Earring Weight: 10 Grams (5 grams each)
Length: 2" (including the ear wires)
E389-1204

$ 98.99          Back


Here's a beautiful pair of Hopi style, silver overlay, cornstalk earrings that we purchased from a highly respected pawn trader in northern Arizona.

The earrings measure 2" long (including the ear wires) and they weigh a quite comfortable 10 grams (5 grams each).

The back of the earrings have the artist's hallmark (Buck) and a stamp that we believe says sterling.

We do not test for sterling as the chemicals in the testing kit tend to stain the silver. However, we are 99% sure that the silver is sterling.

These earrings were made using the Hopi silver overlay technique where the cornstalk designs were carved out of the top layers of silver and then the top layers were attached to the lower layers which the artist oxidized to obtain a "blackened" effect.

We don't know how old they are but these earrings appear to be brand new. There are no scratches, or dings, and there are no signs of wear.

This wonderful example of genuine, handmade, Native American art will certainly make a terrific addition to anyone's jewelry collection, or a great gift.
