Price: $20.00

These simple earrings are Mimbres designs.  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. The designs on these earrings are created on a computer to resemble the designs found on the ancient pottery, they are transferred on to handmade porcelain discs.  Then they were fired to 2000 degrees F (1200C )
