The Coiled Power Collections

The Golden Eagle, the largest of the indigenous raptors that serve as messengers and guides, is known as The War Eagle. It is he whose presence instills courage in the hearts of the warriors, he who lends his powers of swiftness and accuracy to their efforts. Wings honors the great spirit bird with this coil […]

True resistance requires a thorough grounding; it requires firm deep roots from which to draw sustenance and strength. When one is rooted in history, in tradition, in the power and spirit of the ancestors, one is granted the spiritual abundance needed to resist on behalf of the people. Wings pays tribute to such roots, and […]

While the outside world considers it a bad thing, to our peoples, uprising is the natural act for a spirit imbued with courage: defense of the people; protection of children, elders, the vulnerable; a willingness to stand up when required even as one remains rooted firmly in one’s ancestral tradition. Wings infuses this coil with […]

Bravery can exist in one act, but courage is a way of the heart. True leaders know this, and live their lives accordingly. Blue is the color of leadership, of loyalty to community and fidelity to cause. Wings brings concept and character together in this coil bracelet formed of cobalt-blue and white sodalite nuggets, interspersed […]

The night fire is a source of warmth, of light, of ceremony. Wings honors the tending of it in this coil bracelet in the colors of the flame that lights the dark hours. Orange-red rondels of sponge coral wind around larger geometric spacer beads of blood-red branch coral interspersed with bright sparks of pyrite, shining […]

The cloud serpent is made of water, tendrils of rain uncoiling amidst the thunderheads to bring life to the earth. Wings captures its likeness in this coil bracelet. Cloud-white clam shell heishi disc beads, the color and shape of the fluffy white tops of the thunderheads, anchor it at either end. The center is formed […]

Pueblo peoples hold Corn Dances every year. Some dance specifically to honor the spirit of the blue corn, that beautiful variant of Indian corn whose jeweled kernels manifest in a spectrum of whites, yellows, greens, blues, and purples, sometimes all in the same ear. Wings captures its brightest shades in this col bracelet, a spiraling round dance […]

Some of the most powerful medicine comes from Mother Earth herself. Wings honors her gifts with this coil bracelet, a spiral of small earthy jewels and gems. At the center sit large doughnut rondels and barrel beads of soft green turquoise in the shade of the leaves and grass and medicine plants of the summer season. […]

Here in this place, the rain comes in search of its own dreams. It seeks transformation into a jewel of the earth even as it hopes to join the blue depths of the sacred lake. Wings captures this whirl of visions spiraling on the storm in a coil bracelet in the colors of the water: three hoops […]

Late summer and early autumn are the season of the bears, and the fiery hour of dawn is their time. Here, two small Southwestern hump-backed bears emerge to search for sustenance around a hoop of the world dressed in the colors of the sunrise. The hoop itself is a spiral of memory wire, designed to fit […]

Give yourself a little added horsepower with the help of these four small horses, the four elements whirling together in a hoop: Earth, Air, Fire, Water, all racing in a spiraling vortex of power. Wings creates the hoop from memory wire, coiled into four strands to expand and contract with the power of the storm. The […]

It is the summer storm that brings the rains to the high desert, a vortex of cobalt clouds blessing the land and turning it lush and green. Wings captures the colors of the monsoon season in this coil bracelet, one with more coils than usual, and larger amount of stone. A pair of large oval beads of […]

Wings pulls two elements into a colorful vortex with this coral bracelet in fiercely traditional substances and shades. Ancient spirits of the waters join with the Skystone, itself a product of the influences of earth and fire, to create a spiraling hoop that evokes the powers of the desert Southwest. Lengths of chunky little nuggets of spiderweb […]

It is the season of black stormclouds and white snow, of muted tones in earth and sea and sky. Wings brings them all together in an elegant, elemental whirlwind of shimmering shell and fiery metal around opalescent vortex. Segments of small hematite doughnut rondels, gunmetal gray with a near-mirror sheen, alternate with lightly polished nuggets of […]

Wings honors still-extant spirits older than time with this coil bracelet, a spiraling strand of small gifts left by the beings who once inhabited them. The focal point is a large dendritic Peruvian opal, milky white and shot through with bits of bronze and jet. On either side, chunky nuggets of fossilized dinosaur bone and palm […]

Some call it the phoenix; others, the firebird; still others, a being with no given name. It is a symbol of metamorphosis, of rebirth, of freedom of spirit. Wings captures it here and then sets it free, spiraling upward into the air on a coil of earth and fire. Four small faceted garnet beads refract the […]

They say that all of life is a sacred hoop, but there are more elemental hoops that link earth and sky around us, holding the world in their protective embrace. The peoples to whom this land was given have always known this; it’s why they find protection in the Skystone. Here, dozens of polished glossy […]

It’s a tribute to an old dance that honors the spirit of the horse. At the center of this spiraling coil bracelet runs the Indian paint horse for whom the dance is named, mane and tail whirling outward in both directions. The tiny mustang is carved of red dolomite, a shade so deep it’s nearly violet. At […]

Long, long ago, we came from the center of Mother Earth, or so the old stories tell us. We emerged into the light to find that even upon the surface, her gifts are still what sustain us. Keep them always in mind and at hand with this coil bracelet comprising its own gifts of the earth. Memory wire […]

In our way, water is life. The waters have their own guardians, spirits who inhabit them, protect them, bestow their blessings upon the earth . . . but whose power, once uncoiled, can unleash a flood upon unwary mortals. Wings honors that power with this coil bracelet, sterling silver strung with square beads of lapis […]

The Skystone is a gift of the elements: the child of water and earth brought together in a spiraling stormy union, midwifed by the air’s own embracing winds and the soil’s fiery warmth. Together, they create a jewel that embodies the hue and power of this place, a gem that lends its shade to the […]

It is blood that connects us to our ways and our people, to the ancestors long since walked on, and to the Seventh Generation not yet born. Wings honors that coil of existence here, linking together free-form barrel beads of blood-red branch coral that spiral around and around in a representation of life’s sacred hoop. The […]

Native peoples all over Turtle Island historically used shells for trade and commerce, for prophecy and medicine, from wampum in the Northeastern Algonquin lands to heishi here in the desert Southwest.
