Ke-Wa Pueblo 'FOLK ART MOSAIC' Artist MARY TAFOYA FIGURE 8 Whimsical Earrings

360.00 390.00

Each & every piece is taken from it's rawest form & then cut,drilled,inlaid by Mary..What makes her style so unique is the fact, that when she cuts the whole shell,she will use the curled form that acts as part of the whimsical design that accentuates the other materials that also play a role in the overall design.

With these,she used 2 sizes that lay in opposite directions to form the "Figure 8" shape.The Kingman turquoise leads you from the upper curled form to the lower & the large curled bottom acts as a frame for the playful tri-colored flower pattern.The stone is inlaid into a stark black material & helps the design to pop.All the materials lay 'flush'.

Mary's work is meant to have a 'irregularity to her pieces,with a perfect at "being imperfect' sort of look!

**SHOWN IN PHOTOS,IS A NECKLACE OF MARY'S THAT IS LISTED.IN PHOTOS,YOU CAN SEE THE OTHER EARRINGS I HAVE LISTED.

BECAUSE THIS IS MADE WITH HUMAN HANDS & NOT COMMERCIAL MANUFACTURING MACHINES,THERE MAY BE SLIGHT VARIATIONS.

JUST A NOTE:

You don't look to 'match' anything together with Mary's,since no 2 pieces are the same,Since she generally uses the same stones & everything is made in the same style,they all go hand in hand together!!
