Anthony Lovato, Kewa (Santo Domingo)
Employing the labor intensive tufa cast method, Anthony Lovato's all handmade Corn cuff bracelet, with an outstanding New Landers turquoise stone, is extraordinarily lovely.
The exacting process involved cutting a tufa stone in half, smoothing out both surface sides, etching a sprue hole on top, then carefully carving out this corn design, in which Anthony poured in molten sterling silver. The end result is this amazing bracelet that tapers from about 2" to 3/4". The gorgeous New Landers turquoise stone is about 2" by 1".
Inside this super wearable and comfortable cuff bracelet, is Anthony's signature along with inspiring Horse, Hummingbird, flower, Dragonfly and pueblo-inspired motifs. He is an avid horseman. This mouth-watering cuff bracelet's entire inner circumference is about 7 1/4", including the opening of approximately 1 1/4".
Mary C. Lovato, Kewa (Santo Domingo)
Mary C. Lovato, from the Kewa (Santo Domingo) Pueblo, has been making jewelry since the 1950's. Her mosaic earrings are colorful, creative and classic. These earrings each feature a sterling silver cornstalk surrounded by many tiny pieces of turquoise and are rooted into a bed of red coral. The mosaic is overlaid onto a base of peachy melon shell. One of the earrings carries Mary's initials incised into the melon shell. The earrings measure 2 1/2" long, including the ear hooks, by 1 " wide.
Sandra Quandelacy's reversible corn and maidens pendant necklace showcases colorful and out-of-sight materials like green turquoise, orange spiny oyster shell, lapis, marble, pipestone, fossilized ivory, phosphosiderite and jet all carved and incised into individual corn cobs that average about 1 3/8" long. They are neatly strung with turquoise, red coral, white shell and heishe shell beads on a single strand that's about 25" long.
Taking center stage on this fabulous necklace is a reversible gold lip shell corn maiden on one side, while the other side is a Grandmother, about 3" long and 1" wide. We love how Sandra's handled the traditional clothing Grandmother is wearing, the pleat details are wonderful. Both maidens are incised with lovely Dragonfly friends and star elements, and are inlaid with red coral, turquoise and jet bits. Their facial features are incised and inlaid with jet paste. Don't miss this collectible fetish necklace, it's exceptional.
