TAWNY CRUZArtistically MadeHummingbird/FlowerFox Turquoise925 Earrings
The 1st time I saw Tawny’s work, I could see this artist had something unique about her work & had a style all her own, with everything created coming from her creative mind, without copying others. No, it’s not’traditional Navajo at what she does, it’s just plain’art’ & executes her original designs into metal form beautifully.. Until recently getting married, she was formally Tawny Willie & coming from a family of Navajo silversmith’s like Juan & Ronnie Willie, how could not some of their expertise, not rub off? Taking from the beauty of nature & incorporating it into metal art form, these are designed with a free form cut flower that is the anchor for the hummingbird that seems to be flying up to the flower. You can’t have hummingbirds without flowers nor vise-versa! Both the flower & bird are given a non-oxidized textured sterling, whereas the beak & the sterling wire lines & ball of the flower have a smooth finish to them. The bird has jagged cut out areas that add to their appeal. The hummingbirds have a rectangular cabochon of green Fox turquoise & are low bezel set. The gauge is light, so these are an extremely wearable weight earring. (You can judge by reading weights below). These have a true feminine feel & if you can appreciate the beauty of what the hands & mind of an artist can do, you will not help but enjoy these! Tawny is a young woman & fairly new to the industry & I can only see her climbing her way up the ladder to success! ARTIST: TAWNY CRUZ (FORMALLY”WILLIE”).
