Maiden Becomes Elder Pendant

By Sandra Quandelacy

This offering is sold.
Sandra Quandelacy's lovely reversible spiny oyster shell corn-maiden and grandmother pendant is an exquisite representation of feminine energy and strength. Each lady's face is incised and darkened with jet paste. The maiden is adorned with a tiny turquoise cabochon at her throat, her body nicely incised with rows of life giving kernels some of which are inlaid lapis and turquoise. On the reverse side the wise elder is wrapped in her corn husk shawl and wears a lapis cabochon. About 2 1/4" long including silver bale fixture, and 1/2" wide. The silver snake chain is available and sold separately here.
