These earrings are an homage to corn! Mexicans call themselves the "children of corn," descendants of people whose religious pantheon included three corn gods. Cornstalks were common patterns in ancient Mexican art and between the Guatemalan and U.S. borders grow at least 32 varieties of corn, each with various sub-varieties, developed in response to climate and soil differences.
These are works of art. Absolutely love these earrings. Cast in .925 Mexican silver with amber.
Fabulous multi-strand necklace strung of antique balochi and silver beads. The hook closure is sterling silver. The multi-strand portion is an original portion of an old necklace. 17 inches long I can add an extension chain if you request one.
