Santa Fe Earrings

Santa Fe Earrings

One of the places that I would love to revisit, Santa Fe has a very distinctive character that is unforgettable. The cultures of indigenous people, Spanish missionaries and frontier Americans were blended together in a facinating quilt of their heritage. The artists of the many pueblos in the Santa Fe and Taos area are know for their pottery, much of it designed and fired using the same methods as were used hundred of years ago. Contemporary artisans of all kinds are drawn to the "Land of Enchantment" and artists colonies have become well established and internationally renowned.

Terra cotta ceramic components in my earrings are from Pajego Art House . They capture the southwestern mood when accompanied by burnt yellow seed beads, turquoise sea glass, with gun metal and brass accents.

  1. Fabulous! I have southwest on my mind too. LOVE those ceramic tablets--delicious with the teal (especially loving those sea glass beads).

  2. This is the style I prefer most. This is MY style! ;D
    In love South America and I'm dreaming of living there in a future...maybe!

  3. Love southwest colors and designs. These are gorgeous.
