Cherry Blossom Pin / Pendant with CollarKathy (Elk Woman) Whitman
A prize-winning Lakota sculptor, she creates beauty whatever the medium. She has won blue ribbons at Santa Fe Indian Market in four categories, the same year: sculpture, jewelry, painting and clothing! This enchanting piece demonstrates her metal working ability and her deep appreciation for Nature’s beauty.
A seemingly fragile blossom is hand wrought of sterling silver. It is sculpted in three-dimensions; very lifelike. The hand -hammered collar is also of silver, and matches the delicacy of the flower, but add a subtle contrast of texture.
This wonderful piece is not only ethereally beautiful, it is versatile and practical. It can be worn in at least four ways: as shown, the flower alone as a pin, the flower alone as a pendant, and the collar with different pendants. As beautiful as the first blooms of Spring, this silver flower with be enjoyed for generations.
