Hand Painted Mimbres Design Post Earrings  These simple earrings are on various shapes with a Mimbres Design Handpainted in underglaze, fired, glazed and fired again at over 2000F

From around 200 A.D. to about 1150 A.D. a group of farmers lived along the banks of the Mimbres river in southwestern New Mexico. Near the end of this time around 1000 to 1100 A.D. they began to make the beautiful black and white design pottery which they are known for. This pottery is distinctive in its intricate geometric designs with fine lines and stylized figures of animals, humans and bugs. After about 1150 A.D. their villages were abandoned and no more of their pottery is found.

These are post style earrings.  The posts are surgical steel.
