Where there is a Dragonfly, there is water. Ask Zunis about a dragonfly (Shumak'olo:wa in the Zuni language) and they will tell you that a dragonfly is the messenger who carries prayers to Spirit World. The double-winged form of a dragonfly is sometimes referred to as the “Pueblo Cross.”
Bursting forth with colors like turquoise-blue, navy blue, yellow, lavender, varying shades of green and golden orange-brown, this one-of-a-kind dragonfly surfite necklace and earrings set is by Brian Yatsattie. He is a prolific, collectible and brilliant Zuni artist. Surfite is a jazzy, recycled material by way of retired surf boards. Each insect is masterfully carved, while the individual surfite beads are uniquely barrel-shaped. The center and larger dragonfly is about 2 1/2" long and 2" wide, while the smaller dragonflies measure approximately 2 1/4" long and 1 3/4" wide. They're strung with surfite and turquoise beads on a 27" long necklace. The dragonfly earrings hang at about 2 1/2" long and 1 1/2" wide.
Bringing good dragonfly medicine, Brian's refreshing necklace and earrings set will be a favorite in any jewelry collection, easy to wear everyday.
