You are looking at a very pretty pair of earrings from Calvin Begay, a well-known designer of Native American jewelry. Calvin Begay creates a lot of fascinating inlaid jewelry but is best known for these Starry Night pieces. By using jet, lab-cultured opal, and tiny silver pieces, these Native American artists can create the look of a night sky. These dragonfly earrings have a small amount of opal in the body that give life to the black color. The dragonfly's head is also a single opal stone. The round silver pieces are used as stars and are dotted through the surface of these earrings.
These dragonfly earrings are fairly large, coming in at 1 1/4" wide and 1 1/2" top to bottom. Despite the size, Calvin Begay ensured that these are still lightweight. These earrings have sterling silver posts and dangle freely. On the backside you will find the stamps indicating the artist and that these are indeed made of sterling silver.
When ordering, we kindly ask that you allow around six weeks to receive. The reason for this is because they are made specifically for you. Handcrafting this Native American jewelry takes time, and we appreciate your patience. Also, because of their handcrafted nature, the inlay work may be a little different. No two pieces are exactly alike, which is part of the appeal. I promise that they will be beautiful earrings that you will cherish. Plese let us know if you have any questions by calling 308-234-3313.
