: Chimayo Sacred heart Earrings: Chimayo Sacred heart Earrings: Chimayo Sacred heart Earrings

This pair of earrings are in the New Mexico tradition of bright colors. I began with 24k gold fired over copper sacred heart beads. The process of firing creates a very durable product. The colors and designs, which are the same on both sides, are permanent, specifically for metal. I''ve strung them on 2mm turquoise Greek Leather and 24k gold vermeil ear wires. They hang about 1". They are the same, front and back. The color in the second photo is truer than the first, which shows them as paler than they are.

Why have I called this series Chimayo? If you take the high road from Santa Fe to Taos, you'll pass through a little town called Chimayo. Just as you're coming into town, at a crossroads--there's a wall of brightly colored graffiti that looks as if it has gradually evolved into a full-blown, fantastic mural. That funky wall is the inspiration for this series.

I think of this series, as encapsulating the spirit of Santa Fe, which has strong Mexican and Spanish influences. Santa Fe is a very special place to live with bright colors everywhere on doors, gates, and in churches.
