Travis Lasiloo's black marble Raven has a most an intelligent gleam in its eyes of turquoise. Some corvids have been trained to solve up to eight piece puzzles, using various sticks as tools to obtain desired food. These enchanted birds delight and capture our attention with their crafty and beautiful ways. The most intricate feather work, a gorgeous beak and criss-crossing tail feathers are additional wonderments of this approximate 6" long, 7/8" wide and 1 1/4" tall fetish masterpiece.
A Raven has an intelligent gleam in its eyes of inlaid turquoise. Some corvids have been trained to solve up to eight-piece puzzles and can use various sticks as tools to obtain a desired food. We love Jimmy Yawakia's take on this amazing bird, beautifully carved from a black marble that's been well-polished. He says "Every stone has its own energy and that is how collectors get drawn in with the stone and the carvings." About 1 5/8" tall, 3/4" wide and 2 3/4" deep.
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.

This graceful little pueblo maiden by Ray Tsalate is carved from antler, patiently standing bare footed on a base of marble. She wears a mother of pearl shell feather in her finely carved hair, swept up into two little buns, plus a fine necklace of inlaid red coral with a turquoise center piece. Her inlaid eyes of brown pen shell and the red coral mouth convey a serene reverence. The sleeves of her dress are decorated with Dragonflies darkened with jet paste while the bottom is accented with an inlaid design turquoise, red coral and lines filled with pipestone paste. This beautiful carving measures about 1 1/8" wide by 1" deep and stands at 3" tall including the base.
A striking mosaic pendant by the award-winning and collectible Kewa (Santo Domingo) Pueblo jeweler Mary C. Lovato. She has masterfully arranged specially-cut pieces of turquoise, red coral, abalone, jet and marble surrounded by sterling silver to create this one-of-a-kind work of art. The hand element can represent unity and creativity.
All the materials have been overlaid on a natural shell which is about 2 1/4" long and 2 1/4" wide, signed by the artist. The brown leather cord is not included. The hammered silver collar is available and sold separately, please inquire.
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.
