A gorgeous grouping of hand-carved animals are strung on this single strand baby olive heishe and red coral bead fetish necklace representing the Six-Directions that Zuni Pueblo people recognize. They assign a color and animal to each. At the very center of this collectible work of wearable art by Daphne and Leland Boone, is a fabulous turquoise point that measures about 2" long and 1 1/8" wide. The directional animals are a White Wolf carved from marble, a tijilite Mountain Lion, an Eagle of ricolite, a Badger of magnesite, a jet Mole that's about 1 5/8" long, and a turquoise Bear coming in at about 1 1/4" long. The animal's have inlaid eyes of turquoise or red coral, except for the mole, whose eyes are incised. The overall length of this treasured necklace is approximately 26".
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.
