Half-hoop post earrings with delicate inlay of turquoise, coral, onyx and mother of pearl in traditional sunface design. Set in sterling silver with roping and beading detail.
Handmade by Zuni jewelry artist, Emerson Vallo.

The Zuni incorporated their respect for the sun into their jewelry in form of the Sunface. The traditional Sunface represents the finest in Zuni inlay artistry and craftsmanship. It is generally crafted as a circular motif and its center inlay represents the face of the Sun. The forehead is normally divided into two sections that symbolize the non-stop cycle of sunrise and sunset. The lower part contains rectangular eyes and a round mouth symbolizing the continuity of life.
