Bracelets

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 id 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. Wings pays tribute to song and ceremony with a coil bracelet in ethereal tones, color as melody and light as dance. It begins with a length of brilliant amethyst chips at either end; […]

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. With this coil bracelet, Wings summons the symbolism of visionary worlds and the guidance they offer us in creating a better world for the generations yet to come. At either end, four smooth-polished […]

In some cultures, a sage is a seer, a spiritual leader revered for his or her powers of wisdom and foresight. In ours, sage is equally mystical, a medicine given to us in the form of a plant by which, dried and lit with flame, we cleanse our world and ourselves, and seek the wisdom […]

We depend upon Sun and Moon to light our path, to warm our world and brighten our days. Wings honors their luminary power with this coil bracelet, a spiral of pure sunlight in the many colors it wears over the course of a single day. It begins with rough-cut nuggets of bright yellow African opal at either […]

The Red Road is a place of symbol and metaphor, a path of wisdom and a life lived well. For some, it is that which we call the Tipi Way; for others, it refers to sobriety; for still others, it denotes the way in which we are given to go well through life. Wings honors […]

The seventh coil in Wings’s Generosity Collection of the Seventh Fire Series represents what is often the greatest gift of all: Time. The spirits grant us time to walk upon the earth;l in turn, we are charged with giving generously of our own time to others, particularly the younger generations who need help to learn […]

The harvest season is when Mother Earth is at her most generous, and an abundant harvest is one of the gifts of the spirits that our peoples have sought since the dawn of time. Wings captures the colors of autumn’s gifts with this coil, a whirlwind of turned leaves and ripened Indian corn. Segments of […]

The spirits charge us to be generous with our fellow persons, which is only right; after all, the spirits are generous to us. At the most fundamental levels, they offer us life: not merely our own lives, our own journey around the sacred hoop, but the living world that surrounds us, manifest in the four […]

The spirit of generosity compels us to offer a gift when we seek a favor; it shows respect. It’s customary, when seeking the blessing of the spirits or the assistance of our fellow man or woman, especially an elder, to offer a small gift in the form of tobacco. It shows respect and gratitude, and […]

Sometimes, we have little in the way of material goods, but that does not mean that we have nothing to give, either to others or to Spirit. In our way, it is customary to make an offering to the spirits at prayer: a little cedar or sage smoke, a little sweetgrass, a little tobacco, sacred items offered as […]
