“Ascending to the Night” Pueblo Pin. $355.

Beneath the high desert’s impossibly clear skies, rooftops provide a means of ascending to the night, to touch its velvet blanket beaded with the light of a thousand thousand stars. Wings reimagines the classic crenellated rooftops of the Pueblo’s North House beneath a darkened sky with the pin, saw-cut in its iconic form and shape and set with the jewel of a moonless night. The outlines of the ancient homes and their individual doorways are all cut freehand using a jeweler’s saw, the old-style windows hand-scored and the vigas hand-stamped beneath the roofline of each individual home. The traditional pine ladder, posts formed of sterling silver triangle wire and rungs of sterling silver round wire and overlaid securely against the surface, sits propped against the front for easy access. Offset from center, a single cabochon of glossy black onyx summons the shade of the night sky down to the walls. The pin’s surface area is 2.5″ wide; domed for wear, it measures 2-3/8″ wide by 1-1/4″ high from base to ladder’s uppermost tip; the onyx cabochon is 3/16″ across (dimensions approximate).
