These unique Pueblo lightning earrings are crafted from hand cut tiles of mother of pearl, green serpentine, apple coral, lapis lazuli, clear yellow gaspeite and sterling silver inlaid onto spiny oyster shell. Gifted jewellery designer and maker Stephanie Medina and her son Tanner Medina work together on their one of a kind earring designs. These Pueblo lightning earrings measure 5 cm in overall length, including the sterling silver ear wire.
