These are Beautiful Navajo Earrings made by Artisan Silversmith Joe Willeto in Bear with Sun Face design. I have been researching and can only find similar pieces in the same pattern, I'm thinking this was a popular design in his body of work. Approximate date would be the 1970's-1980's, my trail has gone cold on looking for him so I don't know if he is still producing jewelry. One of the Sun Faces has darkened Eyes and Mouth and the other lighter, I also read the lines that look like tears are actually representative of Rain.
Signed on the back of one piece Joe Willeto with Arrow Hallmark and Sterling, the Ear-nuts look original. Weight 8.8 Grams.
Measures 1 inch by 13/16 of an inch.
