About This Item
Beautiful jewelry, like these Sunburst Earrings, has always been a part of life for the tribal people of the Southeastern United States. Copper was traded from the Great Lakes regions beginning about 3000 years ago and fashioned into earrings, necklaces, and ceremonial objects. Ornate adornments made of clay, copper, gold, carved stone, rock crystal, incised pink mussel shell and freshwater pearls have been worn into modern times.
These earrings evoke the spirit of the ancient Cherokees. They are created using copper disks that have been stamped in a sunburst pattern to catch the light and eye. A tapered silhouette to elongate the neck. Copper ear wires.
