Large Moonstone Swarovski Crystal Center Earrings
These earrings were made by DeAnna Bear and feature large (28mm) Moonstone Swarovski Crystals in the center with a "finger-nail" post. The center crystal is surrounded by rose gold, pink, and periwinkle beads. This pair also feature rhinestone banding and acrylic pearls.
DeAnna is a self-taught beader and a classically trained visual artist. Her beadwork caters to contemporary style and offers the community statement pieces.
DeAnna's artwork often addresses the Indigenous diaspora so that she raises awareness on the plight of being Native in a colonized world. Her artwork is exhibited at the AACA Museum (Smithsonian Affiliate), Ravenous Zine, and Five Oaks Museum.
