“Blanket and Shawl” Coil Bracelet. $325. SOLD.

In our cultures, humbling oneself before the elders and the spirits by donning a blanket or a shawl are signs of respect. Each plays its own role in our traditions and lifeways, whether as elaborately spangled and brilliantly-hued regalia for dancing or in modest and muted tones for solemn occasions and events. Wings captures their spectrum of shades and variation in this coil of color, a tribute to traditional expression and purpose. it begins at either end with big bold anchor nuggets of citrine, as though to capture the sun itself, then moves into the grassy green of peridot chops and the watery aqua of blue aventurine nuggets. Next come the deeper waters and the white-mottled blues of a sodalite sky, followed by a range of stormy sugilite purples, bold shades for men and women alike. The deep purples flow into a length delicate translucent amethyst nuggets, lighter and more subtle, thence to the pale dusky pinks of rhodochrosite, a color well-suited to the young. At the center sits a length of fiery translucent carnelian nuggets, the deep red of the local earth, of the blood that flows through our veins and the color we reclaim for our very selves. Designed jointly by Wings and Aji.
