Bracelets

Beneath a fall of water and light, warm waves rock gently against the earth. Wings summons their soft dancing spirits with this cuff, hand-rolled and -milled of sterling silver ingot that shines like ripples on the surface of a quiet lake. The band is solid and substantial, milled to produce a crested wave down the center […]

In our way, respect is not merely a commandment but a way of daily life, one that extends not merely to people or the spirits but also to our other relatives, the animals and the plants, and to stewardship of Mother Earth herself. Wings summons the spirits of the natural world to assemble in spiral […]

Indigenous cultures are built upon respect for the elders, for the wisdom and experience acquired over the course of a life well lived. With this coil, Wings pays tribute to the central role they play in our traditions, and to the lifeways that insist upon their honoring, in the materials and shapes and shades of […]

Some of our cultures show respect, whether for those still living who have accomplished much on behalf of the people or those who have walked on, with an honor song. Traditions vary, but some call upon the powers of elemental and cosmic spirits to protect the well-being of the person or spirit in whose honor […]

The spirit bowl is a traditional means of marking special occasions, of acknowledging the lives of those who have walked on and demonstrating respect for more elemental spirits, too. Wings blends the bold tones of traditional black-on-white and micaceous pottery with an earthy mix representing water and light and the warmth of tradition, all coiled […]

In our way, to give an offering is to show respect: acknowledgment and gratitude and honor to those from whom we seek assistance, whether people or spirits. In some of our cultures, even the artistic and cultural embodiment of animal and other spirits may hold an offering bundle, a collection of feathers or gemstones or […]

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 […]

The eagle feather carries our prayers to spirit; as a gift, it is an honor conferred, a sign of respect for the person who has earned it. Wings calls its power into the spiraling hoop of this coil bracelet, one strung with gifts of the earth in the mottled earthy tones of Eagle’s own robes. […]

Our world, and our place in it, are powered by the twin forces of rotation and revolution, keeping the earth anchored in the proper space and time. Rotation keeps us humble, ensuring that we do not lose our place in the universe, while revolution teaches humility in the form of requiring us to look outside […]

We stand humble in the face of the laws of physics, forces and spirits that teach us the humility needed to cope effectively with our largely earthbound existence on this plane. Wings honors the law of gravity, its force and power and strength that keeps us safe, in a spiraling descent of ethereal light. The […]

The Sky Spirits hold the powers of warmth, of illumination, even of life itself; they teach us humility by the gift of their presence, and by our powerlessness in their absence. Wings summons the beauty of these beings into jeweled form around a spiral of pure light. At the center of this coil lie representations […]

We are kept grounded by the movement of the earth, a tectonic shift of epochal proportions that creates the world in which live, and teaches us humility via lessons of scale of time. Wings evokes this seismic process with a coil centered around the children of fire: an expanse of seven ovaled barrel beads formed […]

Little teaches us humility as effectively as extremes of weather and climate. With this spiraling spangled coil, Wings calls upon these powerful forces for aid in weathering the elements. Each end begins with tiny polished free-form nuggets, little more than chips of sky blue turquoise in earthy matrix, each separated from the brilliance of more […]

Our ways teach us to respect the lessons of the wheel, the winds, and the Sacred Directions, powers and animating spirits far stronger than we who show us the value of humility in the face of cosmic forces. Wings pays tribute to these cardinal powers with a spiral of gems in the colors assigned to […]

Seasons and time are eternal, forces that teach us humility by their very endurance, humbling us in the face of their inexorable power. They teach us, too, to deal with impermanence: of weather, of youth, of troubled times and good ones, too. Wings honors their lessons in this coil of jewels, anchored at either end […]

This is a land that has always lived beneath a fall of water and light, but this is a time of drought: rain scarce, and groundwater, too, in the surplus flow of a river of light. With this rolled-ingot cuff, Wings summons the river’s magic into tangible form, a microcosm of brilliant season and space […]

New life emerges in a fall of water and light. With this cuff, Wings honors each filament that arises — a flower’s stamen, a feather’s barb, silvered threads, an element made of pure light — all banding together in raised strands of sterling silver ingot buffed to a finish just off Florentine. The long slender band […]

The warm days descend in a fall of water and light, the sun’s rays spread outward like the silvery fringe of the sky’s own shawl. Wings has crafted this cuff in the lines of the light, a single band striated into three-dimensional conjoined strands of silver fringe, all buffed a shade off Florentine. The simple […]

The way of the heart leads to the center of all things. Wings tracks its progression with this old traditional-style wristband crafted of heavy polished bridle leather and six sterling silver miniature conchas, each evoking the imagery of a journey within a broader hoop of stylized hearts and symbols of illumination.  The conchas are cut […]

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 […]

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 […]
