18K/Black Jade/Coral Earrings by Richard Chavez (San Felipe)

Richard Chavez (San Felipe Pueblo, b. 1949) studied architecture at the University of New Mexico in Albuquerque and worked as an architectural draftsman at the firm of Harvey S. Houshour. One of the projects he assisted with was the design of the Indian Pueblo Cultural Center in Albuquerque. Chavez taught himself jewelry making through diligence and trial and error. Initially, he cut and shaped shells into heishi*, but he stopped due to the influx of Asian shell beads. He entered his first competition, the Eight Northern Indian Pueblo Arts and Crafts Show, in 1976. Winning the grand prize for a white mother-of-pearl necklace, ring and bracelet set sparked Chavez’s jewelry-making career.

Each earring measures 1 1/2 inches long by 1/2 inch wide. Gold posts.
