Cuffs and Links and Bangles

Fire purifies and cleanses, warms and heals. It’s the center of the Native home and the means by which we send our prayers to Spirit. It’s also the force that lives within our hearts, warrior spirit and visionary flame alike. Wings captures fire in all its forms and facets in this one simple and simple […]

Sometimes, stone and silver work together in perfect synchronicity. So it is with the elements that together constitute this classic hook bracelet: shade and symbol, substance and style all in one perfect whole that is far greater than the sum of its parts. At the center of the hand-made bezel lies a very, very old […]

Like the shining silver ribbons of the Quartzite and the Red River tributaries as they feed into the rapids of the Rio Grande, this solid sterling silver cuff of hand-rolled triangle wire parts one line into three and then merges them into again into a single flowing line. The band is simple and spare, with no […]

The Eye of Spirit guides dreamers to powerful visions, visits of and to the spirit world protected by Spider Woman’s own web. The Eyes follow the length of this cuff’s sterling silver band, safe within the lodge symbols that trace each outer edge.

The Pueblo’s own peaks manifest in miniature in this slender silver cuff that evokes the northern ridgeline. Hand-rolled over heavy-gauge sterling silver triangle wire to create a mirrored effect, the band’s central summit slopes down into deep valleys that, like their real-life counterparts, yet rise again into lower ridges on either side. The subtle Florentine […]

Their peaks and valleys contain natural kivas, secret sacred spaces where spirits dwell and power takes tangible form. This heavy-gauge triangle wire cuff bracelet, rolled and milled by hand and stamped in a positive/negative stepped pattern, pays tribute to those […]

It’s the desert’s most precious element, the one gift above all others that sustains life here. In the summer, it flows from the sky as monsoonal rain; in the winter, it’s the runoff from the snowpack ion the peaks that stand sentry over our daily lives. The waters take tangible form in this perfectly simple cuff: […]

Our dreams are the threshold between our contemporary existence and ways much older than memory. In many traditions, Spider Woman is the gatekeeper of such thresholds, and today, we still use the gift of her web to protect our dreams. Here, her ancient power is embodied in this spectacular cuff, hand-formed from a single piece of sterling silver and adorned with stones […]

We walk in two worlds, maintaining our connection to our own world and to the real sacred space of our traditions. This space is tangible, intangible, and wholly spiritual:  the space that lives forever in our hearts and spirits and ancestral memory. This cuff manifests this space in all its forms. The magical, mysterious lapis cabochon, […]

The Corn Maidens and other female spirits evoke the sights and sounds and smells of Summer, with its lush and fertile greenery.

In the interstices inhabited by the elemental powers, Spirit catalyzes fire and ice, bringing them to life in our world, their full strength and power yet held back: a reminder that if we are careful, we may use their gifts rather than be consumed by them. Here, Spirit’s Eye traces the length of the band […]

Spirit mediates between our worlds in the interstices, in those shadowy regions inhabited by the elemental powers.

Pueblo culture takes form in its stories of how the People came to be.  Some of the most foundational, the most elemental, tell of our relationship to the natural world, the sacred peaks and waters so wholly a part of our collective being.  Here, those stories assume tangible form in a cuff of heavy-gauge sterling silver triangle […]

Sometimes the stories and lessons in the symbols left for us by the Ancient Ones are simply reminders to be thankful:  for the storms that bring the rains, allowing life to blossom and thrive in the desert peaks and valleys.  Here, hand-stamped thunderheads line either edge of this heavy-gauge triangle-wire cuff, allowing the rains to […]

Our stories are ones of interconnectedness:  ancient symbols and patterns that link our present irretrievably to our history and our future, that link our own existence with that of our ancestors long ago and our descendants not yet born, even unto the seventh generation.  Such stories are woven into the sacred hoop of life, reminding us […]

The moon symbolizes the Sacred Feminine in cultural traditions the world over.  Among our peoples, she plays her own role, as counterpart to the sun, in sustaining the people through each night.  Even when she is new and dark, like a sacred hoop of mysterious jet, still she gives off ripples and waves of shimmering […]

Female spirits  are often associated with sustenance — with bringing gifts of rain, and with it, fertility and abundance.

Every day, when we ascend the ladder into the light, we enact again our emergence, how we came to be upon this beautiful earth. Our emergence, midwifed by the spirits of earth and sky, and by the spirits of the waters, who bless and protect us to this day. Every day, we arise into the […]
