Vintage Hopi Courtney Scott Sterling Silver Overlay Kokopelli Pierced Earrings #c248

Regular price $115.00
For offer today I have a wonderful pair of sterling silver Kokopelli pierced earrings by Hopi silversmith Courtney Scott!

These beautiful earrings are fantastic examples of Hopi sterling silver overlay jewelry, exhibiting raised silver designs with low etched oxidized accent areas in between. The earring dangles are large and diamond-shaped with fabulous depictions of the ancient, mythical Kokopelli figure in a recessed silver overlay. The dangles are also framed with silver overlay details along the edges, adding marvelous visual interest to these superb earrings. The backs of the dangles are finished in a smooth silver and the earrings attach to the ear with sterling silver ear wires. They are absolutely fabulous!

The earrings measure about 2 inches long, 7/8 inch wide and weigh 9.6 grams. They are hallmarked "925" on the ear wires and are signed "CS" on the backs, which I believe to be the maker's mark of Hopi silversmith Courtney Amon Scott, who is known for creating beautiful silver overlay pieces.

The Kokopelli is an important symbol to the Hopi and dates back thousands of years, having been discovered throughout the Southwest in early petroglyph drawings. The symbol is said to represent fertility, dance, mischief to the Hopi along with other meanings. These earrings are quite striking and the ancient symbol they represent make them even more special! They are quite collectible and would be a great addition to a Native American jewelry collection. The earrings are in excellent vintage condition and ready to wear or to gift!
