- Curator's comments
- Purchased at Santa Fe Indian Market because the same owner of the booth at Santa Fe, who was at Santa Clara the week before. The earrings sold in Santa Clara were made of block and plastic materials, however those made for Indian Market, were made of natural materials, because Indian Market prevents the use of fake stone, except for stabilised turquoise in mosaic and some lapidary work.
