Steve Yellowhorse (Initials "SY") is a gifted silversmith, with much of his work based on natural objects, such as these earrings with elaborate leaves and spiral curls like fiddleheads or vine tendrils, as well as sticks of genuine red coral and exquisite, bright blue Kingman turquoise stones with bold black matrix nuggets. These are vintage late 1970's.
Earrings measure 1.5” inches (38mm) long X 1/2” (14.5mm) wide.
Acid tests positive for sterling - also marked "STERLING" on one of the earrings. Hallmarked SY, the same and only initials listed in the "Southwestern Silver" book by Bille Hougart. Yellowhorse began working in 1975, and he is represented in the Heard Museum (Phoenix, Arizona). Collectible Native American Navajo artisan pair! Excellent vintage condition. Note: I can include two clear rubber stoppers for this pair of earrings, if the buyer so desires.
If given a turquoise by a loving friend, that stone would protect the wearer from negative energy and bring good fortune. The turquoise is the symbol of friendship. It also brings peace to the home.
