Zuni jeweler, Orena Leekya, made these beautiful sterling silver channel inlay earrings with Sleeping Beauty set in the studs. She inlaid pink mussel shell, mother of pearl, coral, jet and Sleeping Beauty turquoise into a pattern that could be a tortoise shell or fish scales. Either way, these are super nice earrings!
