Kevin Chapman, Zuni-Sioux
Glorious juvenile bald Eagles have fledged their nest and prepare to migrate to a warmer region as colder days approach. Darrell Shebola is a master jeweler carving each stone and shell in this incredible 25" long handmade sterling silver necklace. Set in the challenging stone-to-stone method, each etched piece of mother-of-pearl, jet, gold lip shell and turquoise are set side by side to compose the jet-eyed raptors. The center bird is approximately 2" long and 1 1/2" wide, while the eagle's heads are roughly 7/8" long and 7/8" wide. The elegant feather elements measure about 1 1/4" long. The hand-fabricated silver chain is really lovely too. Signed by the artist.
A portion of the proceeds from the sale of this eagle necklace will go to the Zuni Eagle Sanctuary. Please see our resources page for more information on the sanctuary.

Keli'i Eli, Zuni-Hawaiian
Sea Turtles spend most of their lives out in the great oceans. When they nest ashore, hatched eggshells provide nourishment to dune plant life such as beach grasses that in turn, help stabilize the coasts and prevent erosion insuring these sacred beaches will be there for the next generation of turtles to come a shore to lay their eggs.
20 carats of beautiful blue natural Egyptian turquoise, with intricate black matrix webbing, are set in a handmade castellated bezel, making up the marvelous carapace of this sea turtle honored on Keli'i' Eli's generous sterling silver cuff bracelet.Keli'i says he was "Inspired by my Hawaiian ancestry, the cuff has a spear design - a weapon used in battle by Koa Warriors also for hunting and protection - used for cutting as well." About 2” wide, with a total interior circumference of 6-3/4” including a 1 1/4" opening. Always pushing himself to master new mediums, we can't wait to see what Keli'i makes next.
