These multistone mosaic earrings by Ronald and Petra Chavez are a contemporary interpretation of a very traditional method of creating, in this case, earrings. The Kewa people have been creating mosaic ornamentation for over 1,000 years. Examples have been found at Chaco Canyon as well as other sites throughout the Southwest. We particularly like Ronald and Petra’s color sense and style. When you wear these unique, sophisticated go-with-everything earrings, the compliments will fly!
