Rudell & Nancy Laconsello
Cardinals represent devotion, loving relationships and the bonds that connect us. This lovely pin/pendant by Rudell and Nancy Laconsello shows a cardinal perched on a branch in front of a white flower. Set in sterling silver, the red coral, shell, jet, and a mixture of malachite and turquoise bring the scene color while the jet darkened delicately incised details bring it to life. The pin/pendant has a diameter of about 1 1/2" and is signed on the reverse.
An inlaid Eagle and Hummingbird unite in this all hand-fabricated sterling silver, inlaid jet, pen shell, mother-of-pearl, red coral, shell, turquoise, malachite and abalone "spinner" cuff bracelet. What's so cool about this cuff bracelet, is that the center feathered friend station rotates to view either side. So it's like getting two cuff bracelets in one. This cuff bracelet's entire inner circumference is about 6 1/4" while the opening is approximately 1 1/2". The center "spinner" bird station is about 3/4" in diameter. Signed by the artist, Quintin Quam.
A portion of the proceeds from the sale of this eagle offering will go to the Zuni Eagle Sanctuary. Please see our resources page for more information on the sanctuary.

Charles Martinez, Jr.
This necklace is a show stopper! Charles Martinez, Jr. carved a beautiful Bear from the spiral of a melon shell, a very large type of sea snail. On the shell he overlaid an alternating heartline of red coral. A wonderful Dragonfly friend is incised on the bear. This bear pendant is about 2 1/2" from nose to tail and 1 1/4" long, with a red coral eye. Above the bear are several other carvings, all of them carry their own unique personality. Highest on the necklace are two Beavers, one is carved of luscious mother of pearl shell, the other of Picasso marble. There are two Eagles, again one is mother of pearl shell but the other is a rich green serpentine. There is a Frog of Picasso marble and a Badger of red coral. Just above the bear pendant are two graceful birds of mother of pearl shell. Each animal has inlaid eyes of black jet or bright turquoise and range in size from 3/4" to 1 1/2" long.
