An absolutely lovely graduated sterling silver bench bead necklace made by a Navajo artisan. Interestingly these come to me by way of Morocco, they have seen the world. These are of a heavy gauge necklace and are quite a lot finer than others that I have seen made more recently. It is signed by the artisan.
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 persist today in popular art. 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.
Sterling silver. About 1.5 inches long. Approx 7 grams.
