Franklin Carrillo, Laguna
is backordered. We will ship it separately when it becomes available.
Franklin Carrillo awes us again with his lapidary and metal-smithing abilities. His latest offering is this amazing abstract inlaid pendant hosting gorgeous sections of lapis, turquoise, rare sugilite, red coral, jet and clam shell. It's about 3 1/8" long including bale fixture and is 1 7/8" wide. This sterling silver pendant is all hand-fabricated and signed by the artist. A red coral and turquoise inlay continues to the reverse side, a gorgeous touch. The hammered collar is available and sold separately here.
Joel Pajarito, Kewa (Santo Domingo)
Lizard reminds us to take time out of your day to bask in the sunlight and dream. This enchanting little creature by Joel Pajarito could be your reminder. The body of the lizard retains a wonderful texture from the tufa casting process and is perfectly complimented by a vivid purple sugilite stone. The pin measures 2 1/4" long and 3/4" wide and carries the artist's stamp plus a date of creation on the reverse.
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.
Jolene Eustace, Cochiti-Zuni
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.
Julius Eustace, Zuni-Cochiti
Ray Tsalate's Mountain-lion of antler stands on hind legs to look you square in the eye. Wearing a kilt and moccasins decorated with the inlaid designs and accent stones of turquoise, variscite, lapis and sugilite. The feathered serpent on the kilt ends in a coiled spiral and was created with inlaid sodalite, pipestone and jet. This cat's face is really sweet too, eagerly looking out of eyes of inlaid gold lip mother of pearl with malachite pupils with a shiny nose of pen shell. About 4" tall, 1 1/2" wide and 3 1/4" deep, with a nice long tail!
