SOLD

Product Description

Artists Carl and Irene Clark hand-fabricated these sterling silver dangle earrings, featuring microfine inlay with turquoise, coral, jet and white shell.

Carl and Irene Clark are well known for the extremely fine quality and detail that goes into their microfine intarsia inlay jewelry.  Carl and Irene are both Navajo and were from large families.  Carl was born in Winslow, Arizona April 10, 1952 and is from the Manygoat-Redhouse Clan and is related to Bitterwater people.  Irene was born in Bird Springs, AZ and is from the Edgewater Clan and related to Towering People.  Clans are very important to the traditional Navajo, especially the maternal clan.  Clans tell the Navajo where they come from as far back as 900 to 1,000 years ago.  Both Carl and Irene came from families with rug weavers in them.

The Clarks have been making jewelry since about 1974.  Carl was self-taught in 1973 and then taught Irene in 1974.   Carl and Irene use the water symbol as their trademark because they are both from water clans.  The “I” in the sign is for Irene and the “C” is for Carl.
