Navajo feather drop earrings
Add a touch of natural elegance with feather drop earrings. Designed by artisan Justin James, the sterling silver earrings are hand-cut to create an organic feathered design. Delicate drops of turquoise stones accent each feather.
On a tour of New Mexico in the winter of 1929-1930, Dr. Barnes acquired a large number of turquoise and silver jewelry pieces. These pieces are on display in the galleries alongside paintings and other objects. As with all his purchases, he chose pieces according to the principles of light, line, color, and form.
