About The Magnificent Inlay Sunface Earrings

How such tiny areas of inlay (Blue Gem turquoise, red abalone shell, mother of pearl and jet) are handled with excellent facility is amazing! Six especially minute raindrops of silver further form a silver halo for each sunface. These pierced earrings have silver posts.
