I’ve wanted a pair of cluster earrings in this style ever since I saw a student who was manning the desk at a museum in Tucson wearing a pair like this. She was Navajo, and she told me hers had been a graduation present. Hers were Navajo-made, not Zuni, which is what I am always curious about when looking at cluster work.
I found these and am delighted with them.
The signature is JMW. Is that Justin Wilson, Sr. (I think Justin Wilson, Jr. has a different hallmark)? Or is it Juliana Williams? These are two signatures that seem to get mixed up a lot in auction listings.
Any guess on turquoise? These are a lighter brighter blue than in pictures.
One photo shows the earrings next to a Zuni-made cuff signed with “D” which I’m also trying to identify elsewhere. But I’m here because I think Jason knows the Wilson family’s work and may be able to recognize it.
