Hopi Lewis Lomay (1913-1996)is considered one of the finest Native American jewelers of the 20th Century. He began his career in the 1930’s as a student of the Navajo silversmith Ambrose Roanhorse at The Santa Fe Indian School and then at The Navajo Arts and Crafts Guild. Later, Lomay worked for Frank Patania in the Thunderbird Shop in Santa Fe. These earrings are screw backs and are 2 1/2" long and 7/8" at the widest area. They are in fine original condition and lay comfortably and securely on the ear. Hallmarked with Lomays' snake hallmark on the reverse of both earrings. His work is versatile, often appearing Modernist in design as these earrings.
