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.

These resplendent and reversible corn maidens of precious sugilite rest permanently on a well-polished black marble base, presented by Daniel Chattin. Sugilite is a rare and valuable stone because it comes from only one mine in the world, South Africa. It's harvested some 2,500 feet underground. This particular specimen of sugilite is rich with color and of a great quality.
We love the way Daniel carved either side of these corn maidens with fluidity and feminine energy. Their corn bodies are incised plus their eyes and mouths are inlaid with jet. Daniel inlaid sky-blue turquoise and vibrant gaspeite stones to further accent this extraordinary work. About 4" tall, 3 1/4" wide and 2 1/4" deep. Extra shipping charges may apply.
