Description

These beautiful channel inlay earrings handcrafted by Zuni Pueblo artist Maxine Soseeah feature coral, jet, turquoise, and mother of pearl which combine at the center to create the Sunface. The Sunface represents Father Sun and is a traditional symbol in Pueblo culture  believed to be a provider of life, a steady figure in our skies, provider of warmth, and believer in all that is good.

Since the 1930's, Zuni Pueblo artists have been arranging these stones into beautiful, delicate patterns that have now become a hallmark of their jewelry.

Earrings measure 1/2" wide and come with certificate of authenticity. 

Our Guarantee of Authenticity

At Shumakolowa Native Arts, we guarantee that your purchase is an original and authentic work handcrafted by Native American artists as defined by the Indian Arts and Crafts Act of 1990. We ask our artists to complete an extensive certification process, providing a CIB (Certificate of Degree of Indian Blood) card and other documentation of their Native American heritage. Our team of experts carefully inspects every product to guarantee it is handcrafted using traditional, sustainable processes and natural materials of only the highest quality. We record the place and date of each purchase and pride ourselves in paying a fair price that allows artists to make a living practicing their craft. At a time when many commercially-made products are being sold as handcrafted Native American art, our in-depth purchase process allows us to guarantee the authenticity of every unique piece of fine art we offer. For more than 35 years, we have made it a priority to visit artists in their studio or home to purchase their latest handcrafted pieces and learn about their work. We have developed lasting relationships with artists, as well as dealers and collectors, and we take pride in being a trusted destination for fine Native American art.
