Description A pair of traditional Hmong fine silver earrings ( > 92.5 % silver) made in a slip-on style. A "U" shaped loop slips over the ear and has a tiny spiral in the back and a silver cone with a beaded base in the front. Suspended freely from the "U" are seven spiral pendants that end in two flat arrowhead shapes. Earrings were made in Thailand by a Hmong refugee from Laos, a relative of May Yang, Saint Paul, Minn.
