Exquisite in their simplicity, these handmade Virgil Ortiz Water Single Drop Earrings were created for the Smithsonian by award-winning Cochiti Pueblo artist Virgil Ortiz. Long delicate chains suspend the water designs of these elegant Virgil Ortiz Water Single Drop Earrings. Sterling silver with posts. Handmade in the U.S.A. Gift boxed.
These elegant Virgil Ortiz Water Single Drop Earrings reflect the intensely graphic designs of all of Ortiz’s creations—pottery, fashion, carpets, murals, and now jewelry. Informed by traditional Cochiti motifs—especially as expressed in the pottery of his grandmother and mother who taught him their craft—the designs of Ortiz’s handmade jewelry are adaptations of Cochiti artistic techniques and traditions, which it his mission to help preserve. The work of Ortiz was featured at the Smithsonian in the exhibition Virgil Ortiz: La Renaissance Indigène at our National Museum of the American Indian-New York, The George Gustav Heye Center.
