Northern Lights .925 Sterling Silver Earrings from Metal Arts Group and designed by Pacific Northwest artist George Estrella. One of the most enchanting phenomenas of our world, the Aurora Borealis is a natural light display caused by the collision of charged particles. Many Northwest Coast tribes associated this light to signs from the heavens, representing both animal and human spirits dancing among the stars.
The earrings measure approximately 1 1/4 inches long (as measured from the top of the sterling silver ear wires) by 1 inch wide. Designed and made in the USA. Gift boxed.
George Estrella was a long-time resident of Ketchikan, Alaska. The inspiration for his work is directly related to the environment in which he lived. The relationship between man and nature found in the Northern landscape, and Alaska, is the foundational influence in his designs. He now shares his time between the Northwest and Alaska.
