Description

Smooth bluish-green turquoise stone is enhanced by a finely handcrafted alpaca metal design. Bamboo beads add eye-catching color and texture to these fair trade earrings. Turquoise is a symbol of generosity, sincerity and affection. Forebears of the Aztecs, Toltecs and Olmecs honed their skills to work this beautiful rock, which they revered. Their talents and ingenuity are evident in the craftsmanship and beauty of the artifacts that have been recovered from ancient tombs.
