Title: Woman In the Moon Earrings
Artist: Denise Wallace
Size: About 1.25" tall
Materials: Sterling Silver, 14Kt Gold, Fossil Walrus Ivory
Comments: These are post-style earrings with an 'omega' clip device that clamps them in place. The post can be removed if wearing them as 'clip-on'style earrings is desirable. See the photos, or call with any questions. In this particular pair of earrings, alternating 'spokes' are covered in 14Kt Gold.
From Denise: "This design comes from a mask carved by both Eskimo and Athabascan natives. The idea of the woman in the moon reminds us of our sister who became the moon. The designs on the cheeks or chins were added by our neighbors, the Athabascans. We have included these designs in our work. This design is one of the pieces I have worked with for some time. The first "Woman in the Moon" reminded me of my grandmother. As a result, I think of her through the design."
