Planished Sterling Silver Hoop Earrings

Lowell Draper

About The Planished Sterling Silver Hoop Earrings

Unique and very difficult to make, these substantial hoop earrings are the creative invention of Lowell Draper, one of the many gifted Navajo artists who worked at the White Hogan in Scottsdale, Arizona.

Though each silversmith was highly creative and a capable craftsman, Lowell is one of those remarkable people who brought something undefineable to the table/ bench.

These planished hoops are very much outside the proverbial "box".  The deeply peened and darkened surface catches the light beautifully from an accomplished uncommon angle.  These are one of a kind earrings of real substance.

The posts have large silver clutches for comfort and security, so that one can dazzle worry free.
