Offered here is a unique pair of earrings! They were originally salt spoons made by the multiple award winning artist Kenneth Begay and then converted to hook earrings. They feature nice file and stamp work, with little holes drilled to shake the salt out under the pockets. They are stamped as sterling. The earring conversion could be removed fairly easily if you wanted them as salt spoons again.
