Native American symbols of power, mobility and continuance of life adorn Joel Pajarito's spectacular tufa cast jewel box. Bison (or buffalo), Horse, sacred Corn, hand elements signifying unity, sprawling teepees, a magnificent head-dressed rider, in addition to important celestial stars, moon, sun and grand raincloud motifs are tufa cast from sterling silver. This amazing jewelry process involves cutting a tufa stone in half, smoothing out both surface sides, carving a sprue hole on top, then skillfully etching out designs, where molten sterling silver was poured in. Joel painstakingly and thoughtfully fortified every surface of this luxurious and museum-quality 2-piece lid with caddy. He also inlaid stunning sky-blue Kingman turquoise and brilliant red coral cabochons. This ultra-gorgeous box is approximately 3" long, 2 3/8" deep and 1 5/8" tall including cabochons, perfect for housing your most treasured keepsake. Signed by the artist.

Masterfully hand-fabricated and gloriously textured sterling silver makes up the majority of this exquisite bird with egg and nest sculpture. The jet-eyed feathered friend has a vibrant spiny oyster shell beak, a mother-of-pearl body and wears a glorious cape of sterling silver feathers. A removable mother-of-pearl shell egg is lovingly cared for by this attentive parent bird. At the base, perhaps toadstools, pebbles, plant life and other lovely foliage happily grows.

Dylan's all hand-fabricated sterling silver "Lightning Deity" figure is an incredible celebration of rain clouds and their powerful static charges that produce lightning, seen as a bright flashes of electricity. These weather producing phenomenons usually result in life-giving and replenishing rains, for which this piece represents.
Layers of alternating lightning bolt elements serve as the headdress for this approximate 3 3/4" tall, 2" wide and 1 1/4" wide work. This special creation is dynamic in presentation because it gives a sense of the unseen whirling winds moving throughout the blanket and clouds. This magnificent small sculpture is signed by the artist.

His friendly eyes are of inlaid pen shell and shell, while his finely incised hair is secured with beautiful sections of natural branch red coral, serving as a head bandana. His moccasins are of rich pipestone and white shell.
On the back of his blanket, Veronica's inlaid a lovely limpet shell from Haida Gwaii, an archipelago off British Columbia’s west coast, in Canada. A turquoise stone rests within this treasured shell.
