The pendant drops of these American Indian sterling earrings are decorated with impressed dark curls that are textured and highly oxidized for dramatic effect. The back of one pendant bears the mark of Hopi Enterprises or Hopicrafts, two workshops founded by Hopi silversmith Wayne Sekaquaptewa. They have secure threaded posts with screw-on clutches (not pictured); they measure a little over 1 1/2 inches long by 3/4 inch at the widest part.
