Rainfall Pendant Earrings Circa 1935

Frank Dishta

About The Rainfall Pendant Earrings Circa 1935

Different fron Frank Dishta's round hoops and his more traditional ladder rainfall forms, these tear drop pendants skim the jawline framing the face beautifully whether that face be oval, heart, round or squared with pronounced jaw line.

These earrings were designed for all the different types of beautiful women out there.  The articulation and movement is a graceful compliment to the wearer's own gestures, as all Native American adornment is deisgned to do.  

The earrings will complete the one who wears them.

The restored earwires are the correct gauge for Native American made earrings of this period. Thicker wires prevent distortion of the piercing, due to pendant weight and movement.  This gauge was comfortable for the jewelers and their families since the 1870's.  Now it has become universally sensible.
