Ray Tsalate's "Infinity Eagle Directional Set" is an extraordinary, all-in-one directional carving consisting of an antler Eagle with turquoise inlaid eyes, permanently mounted on a lovely point of spiny oyster shell. This raptor's body is inlaid with scrumptious materials to indicate wings, with coral, spiny oyster shell, jet, mother-of-pearl, gold lip shell, pen shell, lapis, turquoise, variscite and sugilite. Secured by a white leather tie and gorgeous aquamarine and aventurine beads, are the rest of the directional animals the Zuni Pueblo people recognize. They assign an animal and a color to each direction. We see a lapis Bear with red coral eyes, a black lip mother-of-pearl Wolf with pen shell eyes, a coral Badger with pen shell eyes, a gold lip shell Mountain-lion with jet eyes, a jet Mole with turquoise inlaid eyes and an abalone eagle with lapis eyes. These small animals are exquisitely carved and measure from about 1/2" to 1" long. Overall, this gorgeous work measures about 3 1/8" long, 2 1/2" tall and 1 3/4" wide.
A portion of the proceeds from the sale of this eagle fetish will go to the Zuni Eagle Sanctuary. Please see our resources page for more information on the sanctuary.

Signed by the artist, all hand fabricated.

Mildred Unkestine's gorgeous sterling silver and Sleeping Beauty turquoise necklace and earring set is all hand-fabricated. Each Sleeping Beauty turquoise stone in this set has been hand cut and set into tiny, hand made bezels, an intricate and laborious style of jewelry making unique to Zuni Pueblo jewelers, called "needlepoint" or "petit point". The sterling silver chain is also hand fabricated, resulting in a truly lovely and feminine necklace. The total length of the necklace is about 20" long but can be adjusted using the hook clasp. The larger center V shaped station measures about 2" wide by 1 1/4" tall. Each of the smaller stations on either side measure about 1 1/8" wide by 3/4"tall. The delicate earrings hang at about 1" long including the ear hook, and are 1/2" wide. The necklace is signed by the artist on reverse.
