Tiger Apache Tear earrings
The Apache Tear was found high up in the Jemez Mountains. A great hike! Decided to work around the natural shape of the apache tear with black tiger stripes! The apache tear was set in sterling silver with sterling silver ear wires.
Folklore: The name is a reference to the story of an Apache tribe being chased by the U.S. Calvary. The Apache men were forced over a cliff to their death, and the dark tears shed by the Apache women were said to have solidified into these little dark stones.
