This is a simple, yet striking pair of Calvin Begay earrings. Calvin Begay is an acclaimed designer of Native American jewelry in Gallup, NM. He and his team create beautiful inlaid jewelry, like this pair of earrings. These have picture jasper, jet, and a small bar of lab-created opal. While the design is simple, it is both modern and stylish. The jasper was cut into long triangles with a narrow band of jet in the middle. The opal helps to add a splash of color to the other less vibrant stones. It is a nice balance of color with an elegant impression.
When viewing this inlay work, keep in mind that all these stones are cut by hand. Inlay work holds a special place in Native American jewelry because the artists must be extremely talented and skilled. These earrings would be a perfect match for many of Calvin Begay's other jewelry. Be sure to look at his other work!
These earrings are made from solid sterling silver, including the posts. They are fun because they pleasantly dangle from your ears. These are 1 1/2" long and 3/8" wide toward the bottom. These earrings are lightweight and comfortable!
