Wanderlust pearl and Zuni petit point turquoise earrings (Santa Fe) - Sophia Forero Designs

Wanderlust pearl and Zuni petit point turquoise earrings (Santa Fe)

Ethereal Zuni turquoise earrings set in sterling silver. Done by hand, from carving the turquoise pieces to creating the settings themselves, this Zuni tradition stands out as a precious national heritage. We added wire wrapped stick pearls to complete the look, as the white luster, we think, makes a magnificent contrast to the turquoise.


In my 30 years creating jewelry, I have had the opportunity and privilege to observe countless artisans around the world create work of their culture, from Russia, to India, to Greece. But something literally leapt in my heart when I had the chance to observe Navajo and Zuni artists, within the confines of the reservation, in their element, in their moments of creating. I observed how much love and respect for their people went into each piece, and we respectfully pass them on to you, my darling Sophanista. Each artist represented in the Santa Fe Wanderlust collection gave their permission to us to enhance their work, an honor we take very seriously.
