Although there will be no SWAIA Santa Fe Indian Market this year you can still bring home this amazing and ribbon winning piece from the 98th Market (2019). This gorgeous piece by Troy Sice won an Honorable Mention ribbon in the same year that Troy won the Best in Show award in the Class V: Sculpture category for a separate entry.
Out of the six directional protectors
for the A:shiwi (Zuni People), the white Wolf is the guardian of the east. This wolf by Troy's carved from antler, on the look out, ready to pounce and yet gently carries a sweet blue bird friend. The bird is tied in with an obsidian arrow point with beads of turquoise and coral as an offering bundle carried on the back. The piece measures about 8 1/2" long by 3" across and stands at 8" tall. The wolf's eyes are inlaid lapis. The brown detailing of the nose, ears and tail are from expert burnishing of the antler to bring out the brown coloring.
Troy is an accomplished carver who comes from a long family history of carvers. He is a third-generation carver, the grandson of George H. CheeChee, nephew of Ramie and Miguel Haloo and half-brother of Colvin Peina. His creations have garnered awards in many shows across the country, including Best Of Show in the 94th (2015) SWAIA Santa Fe Indian Market, Class V: Sculpture category.

Bobby and Corraine Shack's sterling silver, turquoise, red coral, jet, pen shell and mother-of-pearl cuff bracelet is all hand fabricated, showing off a gorgeous inlaid Phoenix bird. The inlaid jet dots on the top area of the wings indicate it's a Phoenix bird, according to the Shack's. We love this stylized, mythical bird surrounded by a handsome border. This cuff bracelet's entire inner circumference is about 6 2/8" including the opening of 1 3/8", and comes with the couple's sterling silver signature label attached to the inside of the bracelet.
Mary C. Lovato's jewelry creations are highly collectible! Mary has looked to the past, to a time before European settlers arrived, and been inspired by what her ancestors created. With these earrings she has turned to the canyon walls and petroglyphs of hand and spiral designs. Vivid coral and turquoise surrounded by sterling silver, then overlaid on a bed of mother of pearl shell. These treasures are about 2" long, including hand fabricated sterling silver hooks, and 1 1/2" wide. Signed by the artist.

An eye-catching sterling silver ring styled with a design Amy Wesley likes to call a double Hummingbird. She's used Kingman Beauty turquoise to form an abstraction of this delightful summertime bird. The black design separating the two hummingbirds is actually an open channel. Ring is a size 12, while the hummingbird part is about 3/4" long and 1/2" wide. Signed by the artist, all hand fabricated.
This 15 row petit point cuff makes a strong statement and that statement is "I love Zuni!"

The internal measurement of the cuff is 6 1/2" including a 1" opening. Signed by the artist.
The mallard is thought to be the most abundant and wide-ranging duck on the planet. The male, or drake, is the more distinctively colored of the mallards. Its familiar green head sits a top a white neckband that sets off a chestnut-colored chest and gray body. Merlin Natewa's has captured these colors perfectly in this channel inlaid pin/pendant by using black lip shell, gold lip shell, turquoise, mother-of-pearl, malachite, jet and pen shell. About 1 1/4" long, with a wing span of about 1 1/2" with a sterling silver eye. All hand fabricated and signed by the artist. Silver chain sold separately.
From the master herself, Mary C. Lovato, we offer this wearable work of art. A mosaic of crushed turquoise from different mines in different hues of blues and greens with matrix colors that range from black to white, even ocher yellow. In this universe of turquoise Mary outlined a coral spiral and a star, and a coral and jet half-moon in sterling silver. Framed with sterling silver and overlaid on gold lip shell the pendant is about 2 5/8" long and 2" at the top. On the back Mary attached a sterling silver bale through which runs a luscious string of turquoise beads. These beads are about 21" long finished with sterling silver melon shaped beads and a large hook and eye closure. One red coral bead accents the strand. Signed by the artist.
