Early Hopi Overlay Dangle Earrings by Douglas Holmes


Here is a unique pair of early Hopi overlay dangle earrings, another Hopi addition to our earring extravaganza. The earrings are by Douglas Holmes and they were made to represent his clan, that of the badger. Holmes began silverwork classes in 1948 while on the G.I. Bill. A probable date for these earrings is 1949. Unfortunately, Douglas Holmes only created jewelry for a short period of time as he stopped making silver in 1961. The earrings are hallmarked with both the sun of the Hopi Silvercraft Guild and Holmes' own butterfly mark. They were screwback, but they have been converted to pierced ear posts for wearability. They dangle 1 3/4" by 1/2" wide.
