Description

A talented jeweler, she has links to two of the most prominent artistic families of Zuni: the Poblanos, and the Eustaces.

This enchanting pendant is a contemporary version of the carved stone and silver feather designs so popular in the 1970’s – and made famous by her former in-laws, Ben and Felicita Eustace.

In a deliciously dainty size, the iconic style is updated by the use of natural, orange spiny oyster shell.

Seemingly illuminated from within, the shell glows warmly, a pretty contrast to the icy glitter of the polished silver feather.

Meticulously fabricated, by hand, the pendant is a new version of a beautiful classic that still is delightful.

The silver feather is gracefully detailed; the shells and the silver stand up from a darkened silver base, in three dimensions.

The unexpected  hue of the spiny oyster shell is a lovely foil for the silver, and brings a new look to the design.

Delicate, but noticeable, this pendant is a beautifully updated blast from the past.
