Sandra Quandelacy's amazing corn maiden and Grandmother reversible pendant is carved of a vibrant piece of orange spiny oyster shell. The details of the corn maiden and the Grandmother are neatly incised into the surface of the shell. The corn maiden features a fertile body of corn kernels accented with inlaid stones of turquoise. The Grandmother on the reverse is shown in a belted dress and wears a necklace with a single stone of turquoise. Both figures have facial features darkened with jet paste and are draped in a fringed shawl decorated with incised stars. The pendant measures about 2" long including the bale and gracefully tapers out to about 1 1/4" wide.
