About The Graceful Rainfall Silver & Turquoise Earrings

These delicate graceful earrings are designed to be completed by the wearer.

All Indian jewelry comes alive being worn.  Moving parts and hinges are never arbitrary. They have a purpose. With these ear ornaments, the interpretation is that of sparkling raindrops in a gentle spring shower--bringer of new life and growth especially in a dry land. 

We are not sure which Zuni artist made these, but work is exquisite and embodies everything feminie for that very special woman that cannot be defined or appreciated in any vocabulary !!!
