QUILL WORK DAZZLERS ( Vintage Native American Indian Quill Work Earrings ): Increasing amounts of bead work is being produced by Navajo artists, no doubt inspired by the traditional bead work among their plains neighbors. These bold pierced earrings combine bead work with porcupine quills. (These were a gift to me in the late 70s.) The medallion shaped circular tops are sewn onto a leather backing. The pinwheel colors are hematite (metallic gray), with iridescent beaded inner circles and accents of white. The 3 hanging loops are made of pierced quills. The silver ear wires fasten closed. Light and easy to wear, these are a wonderfully crafted pair of earrings that will bring you lots of compliments. Great with jeans and leather a wonderful way to go native. Condition: Excellent. Size: The earrings hang 3 7/8 from the top of the ear wire. The beaded circular medallions are 1 3/4 in diameter. The quill loops are 1 1/4 long.
