The Zuni have been making jewelry for over 150 years- the technique they practice of setting tiny turquoise is evident in these earrings... we added faceted peridot and vintage gold to give them a twist. The elements for these jewels were purchased at Indian Market 2018...
Peridot: the gem that frees the mind of envious thoughts, and protects the wearer from the evil eye. It brings good cheer, attracting love and joy. In ancient Egypt, priests would crush peridot and add it to wine for healing. Said to calm nerves, the stone is legendary for uplifting the wearer, staving off sorrow.
