Peter Sohappy, New Mexican
Traveling between spirit and physical worlds Dragonfly's wings carry the colors of both. Peter Sohappy used beautifully iridescent abalone shell for this messenger's wings and tied them to the quartz body allowing them some freedom of movement. The mother of pearl shell, abalone shell and silver disk on its back is a gift of thanks from the carver to the spirit of the insect. About 3 1/2" long with a wing span of about 5 1/4". Extra shipping charges may apply.

This necklace is a show stopper! Charles Martinez, Jr. carved a beautiful Bear from the spiral of a melon shell, a very large type of sea snail. On the shell he overlaid an alternating heartline of red coral. A wonderful Dragonfly friend is incised on the bear. This bear pendant is about 2 1/2" from nose to tail and 1 1/4" long, with a red coral eye. Above the bear are several other carvings, all of them carry their own unique personality. Highest on the necklace are two Beavers, one is carved of luscious mother of pearl shell, the other of Picasso marble. There are two Eagles, again one is mother of pearl shell but the other is a rich green serpentine. There is a Frog of Picasso marble and a Badger of red coral. Just above the bear pendant are two graceful birds of mother of pearl shell. Each animal has inlaid eyes of black jet or bright turquoise and range in size from 3/4" to 1 1/2" long. With a secure threaded clasp this necklace is 23" long. Signed by the artist.

A Dragonfly is carved of motor agate, or Fordite, a recycled material from hardened paint by way of automobile factories. This jazzy dragonfly makes its home in the water and plays in the air. Dragonflies are ancient insects that were here before dinosaurs walked the Earth. This inviting fetish has an approximate 3 1/8" wingspan, is 3 1/2" long and 3/8" tall, by prolific carver Brian Yatsattie.
