Zuni artist Andrea Lonjose taught her daughter Tamara the family business. This gorgeous butterfly French hook earrings are perfectly done with a mix of shells, jet, turquoise and coral. The piece is filled with incredible detail and the vibrant colors you would expect to find on such a fascinating creature. You will find the inlaid stones carved to bring the butterfly to life, a technique Andrea learned from Shirley Benn. We have other works by Tamara if you are interested. She has brought the Trading Post a belt, bracelets, rings and wonderful pin/pendants.
