These beautiful silver and red coral stud earrings were hand-made by artisan Marcine Stead of the Zuni Native American culture. These earrings are excellent examples of the "cluster" style of Zuni jewelry, in which Marcine Stead specializes. Additionally, in these earrings Marcine uses round shaped pieces of red coral to create the cluster designs. Marcine signs all of her pieces on the back as "M.Stead". The red coral used to make these earrings comes from the Baja Sea in northern Mexico and the silver from mines in Nevada, USA. Creating jewelry pieces with red coral is difficult for Marcine because good red coral is more rare than turquoise and therefore more expensive.
These earrings measure 1.125" (1 1/8") in Diameter each.
