    Large, Striking, Vintage Handcrafted and Signed Sterling Silver Carved and Antiqued Hopi Sunface Curved Teardrop Pierced Earrings, by Native American Artist Loren Sakeva Qumawunu.

   Each earring measures approximately 1 and 7/16 inches high, by just over about 3/16 of an inch, or approximately 4.7625 millimeters, wide at the top and about 11/16 of an inch, or approximately 17.4625 millimeters, wide at the bottom, and approximately 1/16 of an inch thick. (Included there is a US Quarter in the photographs, for the measurement-challenged and ruler-averse.) Stamped on both of the mismatched clutches, "925", one is signed, "D.F.". Stamped on the back of each earring, "Sterling", and signed with Loren Sakeva's Hopi pictorial maker's mark. Combined weight is approximately 11.8 grams.

  These are vintage earrings, which have been worn and enjoyed. They will have the expected surface scratches and tiny dings to the silver from normal wear. No visible bends or dents, but these are handcrafted and will not be perfectly identical, symmetrical, nor machine-perfect in any other sense. The posts are in wearable shape, though both have a gentle bend. Hand polished , but they may need a bit more attention, in light of extra care taken not to remove too much patina. The Sterling clutches are are mismatched, but both fit and hold well.

   A very impressive and lovely pair of handmade vintage Hopi Loren Sakeva Qumawunu Southwest Sunface Sterling silver earrings
. Heavily and lovingly crafted Native American jewelry. Very collectible and very wearable earrings.
