- Curator's comments
- This pair of earrings is quite typical of Myron Dale Edaakie's work not only in terms of subject matter, but also style and precision. The shell is thin and encased in beautifully soldered layers of silver also engraved with foliage. These earrings are simpler than the larger pieces that Myron Dale Edaakie makes, he does all the work himself, lapidary and silver, unlike Dennis Edaakie who does primarily the silver work.
