These early Apache earrings show an ingenious use of found materials and trade goods. Strung on hay baling wire loops, the glass and brass trade beads feature the addition of a Victorian pair of buttons. The three strands of black, white and cobalt blue beads have two white and one black "corn" or "rattle snake" beads at their ends. Strung on the original thin brain tanned leather these are a wonderful bit of early Southwestern history. These could be modified for wear with the addition of modern ear wires. The earrings are 3" long, 4" with the ear hoops. Weight is 20.4 grams.
