This is a classic double-loop earring made with fine heishi of baby olive shell which exhibits the range of color across the shell. Like the fine heishi necklaces made in this style by Ramona, this is also a design originated by her mother Josephine Coriz which has been "passed down" to Ramona. We first began buying these necklaces and earrings from Josephine in the mid-nineties. Then Ramona started making the necklaces and Josephine mostly only made the earrings. Ramona is now making both the necklaces and earrings and the transmission of the designs from one generation to the next seems almost complete. The cones and wires, of course, are Sterling.
Length of loops from bottom of Sterling cones : 1 5/8"
Total hang: 2 3/4"
