Sponge Coral Santo Domingo Earrings

These colorful, hanging earrings by Santo Domingo Pueblo artist, Ronald Chavez, are made from sponge coral and sterling silver. Sponge coral is primarily found in the South China Sea, in waters close to Taiwan and stretching south to Indonesia. Sponge coral has nothing to do with sponges but got the name because it has many tiny holes like sponges do.  All sponge coral used to make jewelry has been stabilized with resin to fill the holes, improve the color and make it stronger. These earrings are very light and comfortable to wear and the color is perfect for fall and winter wear.
