Lauren Koinva earrings?

do we think this might be Lauren Koinva’s rattle hallmark? it looks a little different from what’s on the amerindien site. Not struck as deeply, for one, and the stem of the rattle is shaped a little different.

Thanks! Happy Friday!

I think I looked at those same earring online a week or so ago and asked myself the same questions. Ultimately I decided it just didn’t look right. The ratio between the width of the handle and the size of the rattle seemed wrong. And I thought that looking at the front, the overlay and the bottom of the of the image didn’t seem proper. I expect to see the “striations” in the black at the bottom and this didn’t look to have them. It didn’t really look like Hopi overlay to me. It bugged me.

Gotcha. I’m a sucker for corn imagery, so at the price i paid, I’m happy even if they aren’t identifiable/Hopi. I bought them for the corn, rather than the hallmark, but it’s always nice to know if you can id something you already like. Cheers!

I agree that they are very nice looking even without a known provenance.
