Silverado Jet Corn Maiden

By Mike Yatsayte

Animal: Corn Maiden, Material: Silverado Jet
This offering is sold.

 Silverado jet differs from other forms of jet in that it's a mineraloid with pyrite inclusions, giving it a wonderful lustrous quality. Mike Yatsayte used this special type of jet to carve this lovely corn maiden. He chose black lip shell for the overlaid face giving the whole carving a magical shimmer. Turquoise kernels accent her body and Dragonfly designs decorate her shawl. About 2 1/4" tall, 1 1/8" wide, and 1/2" deep.
