Sterling Silver Earrings by Anderson Koinva
Hang: 1 1/2"
Anderson Koinva is from Shungopavi Village in Second Mesa, Arizona. Anderson grew up on the Hopi Reservation and was incredibly talented at an early age.
Koinva's intricate overlay technique is on full display in these unique bear paw earrings. The bear paw design was cut from one piece of sterling silver, then laid over another piece and soldered together. The cutout design was oxidized to make it darker; it adds to the clean, bold contrast Koinva is known for.
