Description
 

These lovely earrings of sterling overlay features a Man and Woman, Hopi figures. Hand crafted by well-know Hopi artist Manuel Hoyungowa. c:(1953-2011). He began his career in jewelry in 1970 and presented his work at the Inter Tribal Ceremonial in Gallup, NM. where our family purchased several of his beautiful pieces. He learned the technique of silver overlay from his grandfather, Preston Monongye and also studied at the Institute of American Indian Arts, in Santa Fe, NM. He was not only a talented jeweler, but also a Hopi profit, religious leader and author. He wrote "Cry of the Earth Statement" a Hopi prophecy message, which he delivered to the United Nations General Assembly and Re-submitted 11/23/93.

The earrings measures 1 5/16" round and slightly domed. Sterling posts. A beautiful soft matt finish adds the final touch to these earrings. There is no hallmark, but definitely the work of Manuel Hoyungowa, wish strong provenance.
