Earrings, Drop, Turquoise, Disha, Vintage, 443

Size Guide
Frank Dishta was the first to do flush inlay work - unfortunately he never signed his pieces.

So it is hard to determine the maker of these vintage earrings since it is not marked but is done in the traditional Dishta style of flush inlay.  Regardless of the maker, these dainty earrings feature beautifully hued Sleeping Beauty turquoise stones and finish with sterling silver paddles for a bit of elegant movement. 

A fantastic set for both the serious collector and anyone that appreciates Zuni art.

Dainty & lightweight

Frank Dishta (1902 - 1954)  was born on the Zuni Pueblo and began silversmithing in 1924.  He quickly became a master of the channel inlay technique. His works are part of the permanent collection at the Heard Museum in Santa Fe, NM and in other national museums and galleries. His work and the work of his descendants are highly collectible.

Virgil Dishta, son of the creator and master of the channel inlay technique, Frank Dishta, began learning the art of jewelry making as a young boy from his father. He began carrying on the famous Dishta style full time in the 1940s.  His descendants continue to produce the same style of work originally created by their grandfather.
