Claudia Peina was taught to carve by her brother Colvin Peina (d). He was taught by his uncles Raymond Haloo and Miguel Haloo.
Claudia's high-quality, hand-cut and hand-stamped sterling silver wings grace a Butterfly maiden carved from antler. Traditionally styled hair has been gorgeously incised and a mouth is of red coral. Her confident eyes are of inlaid jet. An inlaid red coral naja necklace adorns her clothing, and a geometric inlaid design of jet further beautifies the dress. Signifying feminine strength, beauty and limitlessness, butterfly maiden stands strong at about 4" tall, 2" wide and 1 1/4" deep.
