Description

College graduate, horse trainer and active roper in rodeos…. Oh, and he is also a major-prize-winning jeweler. Shane won the prestigious, peer-voted “Artist of the Year” award from the Indian Arts and Crafts Association, where he is active in protecting authentic Native American arts from overseas and home-grown fraud.

This latest piece is a fascinating design – a fantasy of the graceful movement of the dragonfly. Aside from its esthetic appeal, this pin symbolizes good luck and happiness; dragonflies hover above water, the precious source of life.p> There isn’t a straight line in this piece (except for the pin itself); the medley of circles and curlicues conveys the almost constant flitting and darting of dragonflies. The techniques are masterful: the chiseling of the beautiful, wave-like curlicues is perfect; the concave circles that form the body are darkened in contrast to the sheen of the rest of the silver.

A lovely deep blue turquoise nestles in the topmost circle – the “head” – spicing up the piece with color. The blue turquoise and the wave-like curls are further references to water, that ultimate bringer of good health and happiness. Wearing this beautiful pin will bring the wearer lots of happiness, too.
