Bracelets

Before the snow flies, spirits of earth and sky dream Indian Summer dreams. Wings honors these visions and the spirits who dream them with his newest masterwork, a piece conceived in the deep symbolism of tradition and executed with 21st-Century élan. The focal point is a large, beautifully spiderwebbed rectangular cabochon of ultra-high-grade Black-Web Kingman […]

Thresholds and borders and spaces between serve to bring spaces together, whether seasons, time, or planes of existence. Wings honors this process of convergence with his latest cuff, wrought of sterling silver triangle wire hand-rolled and -milled into its own convergence of lines and forms, shapes and spaces. At the center, the silver rises into […]

We live now at a threshold, a moment between seasons and spaces. Wings captures its contradictions, the flow of its lines and permeability of its barriers, in this new cuff hand-rolled and -milled of heavy sterling silver triangle wire. The band itself is solid and substantial, with just the right amount of weight and heft. At its […]

Ribbon shirts  and shields and medicine wheels are adorned in the sacred colors of the earth spirits: the winds and the sacred directions, of the elements, of the sky and soil and plants and, yes, the waters. With this slender cuff made of hand-milled and -rolled sterling silver triangle wire, Wings brings together three silver […]

They are the stuff of dreams, spirit threads that form the warp and weft of vision and ceremony like slender, fragile filaments of light. Wings weaves them together in this delicate new cuff, the slimmest strand of solid sterling silver triangle wire, hand rolled and milled to three delicate threads in one: one raised to […]

It is a time of elemental change, Earth rising to link past and present and future in a sacred hoop of protection and survival. Wings links them in more tangible ways with this spectacularly complex cuff, one that fuses one of his very early pieces into a whole new work that honors elemental powers, sacred […]

When the lightning comes, it summons the elemental forces, renewing the world by the power of the storm. Wings pays tribute to its role with this new solid sterling silver cuff, rendered in heavy three-gauge cube wire. Deeply stamped linked bolts of lightning chase each other down the surface of the band, the blank space on the […]

Wind and water are two of the most potent elements of this place, forces that together hold and carry the power of the storm. Wings pays tribute to their combined power, and to the storm they create, with this new cube-wire cuff made of heavy three-gauge solid sterling silver. Vertical lines representing the winds are arrayed, […]

The square of the moon is one small equation in the algebra of light, a fraction of the heavens and a decimal point in the night, an elemental part of the mathematics of the cosmos. We sit at angles to her, gradients and curves that change with time and day and season, and still she remains […]

The earth warms and grows beneath the light. Wings honors both with this cuff made of sterling silver triangle wire, slender but solid. The apex of the band is accented with dozens of small stamps, rows and rays flanked on either angled side by a chased pattern of rising suns. At either end, the band […]

As in Grandmother Spider’s web, medicine is found in the sheltering sky: protection, healing, the holding of life itself by the webwork of clouds that carry the rain. Wings honors the power of sky and stormcloud, rain and web alike in this simple, elegant cuff. The band is formed of solid sterling silver triangle wire of […]

A shimmering silver river pools into three beautiful blue-green lakes in this brand-new cuff by Wings. The band is a solid sheet of sterling silver, hammered by hand in hundreds of strikes to create an effect not unlike light-dappled ripples on the surface of a flowing river. At the center, a large oval cabochon of […]

We are peoples born of a red sun. Wings honors its life-giving, life-sustaining power with three slender strands of silver braided together, flowing outward from a fiery carnelian orb. The outer strands are formed of slim lengths of half-round wire stretched gently outward at the center and bisected by a delicate strand of twisted silver, […]

We all dream of the gift of love, of loving and being loved in return. Wings captures the wistful, ephemeral nature of such desires, daydream and slumber and vision alike, in this first coil bracelet in The Love Collection. It begins at either end with hematite rondels, wispy bits of mist and smoke, parting to […]

In some cultures, it’s a charm; in others, more literal medicine; in still others, something more elemental yet. It’s love medicine, an aid in the seeking  of love, sought for its talismanic power and ability to inspire love in the object of one’s affections, or at least in one’s confidence to approach him or her. […]

The courting flute is a traditional Native red cedar flute, carved and painted at the end in the form and shape of a bird’s head. A young man who wishes to court a young woman will announce his attentions publicly by serenading her from outside her lodge, giving her an opportunity to respond, but from […]

Love stirs a fire in the blood, a vortex of longing and desire. Wings pays tribute to its power with the fourth coil in The Love Collection, a spiral of doughnut rondel beads in earthy, elemental colors. Each end begins with a length of small hematite beads, earth tempered by fire, flowing thence into slightly larger […]

With the fifth coil in The Love Collection, Wings honors marriage directly, invoking a couple’s act of giving their hearts to each other. A length of fiery amber lives at the center, flanked at either end by a single shell heart fetish, the paired hearts of name and act alike. From the hearts, the coil flows outward […]

For couples who have chosen well in love, the wedding song that celebrates their union will become the harmony of their lives.

With the seventh and final coil in The Love Collection, Wings celebrates a love that transcends space and time, one strong enough to last into the spirit world beyond. At the coil’s heart are fourteen round blood-red jasper beads, each with a mysterious matrix that hints at other worlds, of the heart and other realms. […]

In our cultures, we look to Spirit as the source of Creation, of guidance, of wisdom itself. An ancient traditional symbol is the Eye of Spirit, a roughly diamond-shaped image that evokes the Great Mystery’s omniscient powers of sight, powers than can be transmitted to us in visions and dreams. Wings honors this great symbol […]

Our peoples know that wisdom resides in the souls of those who dream, and that those dreams are not bound by time or sleep. The greatest visionaries find wisdom and guidance in all hours and seasons, in dreams of day and night. With this coil bracelet, Wings pays tribute to their practice and the power […]

Many of our peoples place a premium upon the dawn light, calling back the sun, singing him across the sky. At no time is this more true than in winter, when daylight is in short supply, and it’s no surprise that emerging from the dark of night into the sunlight of the new day is […]

Visions are sources of wisdom and guidance, of prophecy and power. In our cultures, they are to be sought, and heeded, too.
