Mary C. Lovato, Kewa (Santo Domingo)
Incomparable and very collectible is this Dragonfly mosaic pendant, all amazingly handmade by award-winning artist and Kewa Pueblo elder Mary C. Lovato. Overlaid on a bed of shell, are many glorious pieces of jet, with vibrant lapis, serpentine and green turquoise. A watery dragonfly is of red coral, spiny oyster shell and turquoise, set with a border of sterling silver. About 2 1/4" long and 2 3/8" wide. Signed by the artist along with her Corn motif.
The silver hammered collar is available and sold separately here. The brown leather cord is not included.
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.

Franklin Carrillo, Laguna
Using channel inlay and hollow form techniques Franklin Carrillo hand build these sculptural beauties. The inlaid lapis, coral, malachite, sugilite, spiny oyster shell, turquoise, and mother of pearl shell window panes create a contemporary design. The hollow form building technique gives them mass without adding weight. About 1" long, 1/4" wide and the bottom, and 1/4" deep each earring weighs .2 oz, the same as 2 quarters.
