Multi Color Corn Sterling Silver 20 Inch Necklace Earring Set Native American Zuni Artisan Tracy Bowekaty NAN-1424. Just beautiful with Necklace consisting of Corn in clear blue Turquoise, Purple Spiny Oyster Shell, Orange Spiny Oyster Shell, Red Spiny Oyster Shell, White, Pink and Yellow Mother of Pearl all etched to represent kernels and delicately inlaid with variant handcut Coral, Malachite, Jet, Turquoise and Lapis representing the various colors of Maize often referred to as Indian Corn by Anglos. Sterling Lobster Clasp. Settings in Necklace and Earrings measure the same. Earrings offer center post and is inlaid with Coral, Malachite, Lapis and Jet which may not be obvious in the images. Maize is a symbol of substance.
I personally enjoy this piece on many levels including Artistic Folk Art, Cultural Symbolism and Colorful Spirit. Although a wonderful addition to any collection, I also think this Set would be a wonderful gift for a Bride.
