This exquisite pair of earrings from a Zuni master silversmith and lapidary artist could easily be viewed as a cloud from which rain is falling in torrents.  The artisan fashioned a round silver platform on which to mount a circle of turquoise cabochons on the perimeter and four more on the inner circle.  A twisted silver wire encircles the four inner cabochons. From this platform, there are four pendants, each of which is silver supporting three miniature turquoise cabochons. The earrings are fitted for pierced ears.  They are not stamped with the name of the artisan.   They appear to be mid-twentieth century earrings.


Condition: original condition

Provenance: this Zuni Pueblo Silver and Turquoise Earrings with Falling Rain Pendants is from a resident of Colorado
