Earrings

In a land of dry earth, the world dreams of water. The people of this place know this dream better than most, and Wings’s new earrings envision both world and water into being. A pair of matched freeform cabochons of ribbon turquoise, earthy brown traced with sky-blue streams and set into simple scalloped bezels, form […]

In some traditions, Spirit dreams the world into existence, molding it by way of mystery, medicine, and the very dust of creation. Wings captures those early moments of our world with these earrings, a pair of freeform ovals of natural American turquoise in pale robin’s-egg blue aswirl in the golden brown dust of the earth […]

There are times when survival requires resistance, requires a return to the old ways, requires faith and prayer and visions and dreams. With this pair of earrings, Wings has reconceived his eagle-feather series in new ways: a change of color, an addition of precious gems, greater labor in design and execution . . . and […]

Spirits move and travel where they will, especially those who embody elemental forces. So its with water, which combines with gravity to flow, its progress altered and directed only by its fellow elemental spirit, earth. Wings gives form and expression to the way of the water with these earrings, simple traditional drops built around a spectacular […]

In our cultures, we wear our medicine, in symbol and in fact. Here, Wings has captured the beauty of an significant form of medicine, and the tradition to which it is dedicated, in this powerful pair of earrings.

The rains nurture body and spirit, our own and Mother Earth’s alike, encouraging life and the sacred to flower into being. Wings honors this elemental gift with these earrings in sterling silver, set with Skystones and ringed with  powerful traditional symbols. Each earring is a round disc, lightly domed in repoussé fashion. At the centers are a […]

Silver conchas link sky and sea, opening their world into a beautiful protective shell. Each earring is coaxed from a single oval concha of traditional shape and size, polished to a mirror-like sheen. A repoussé heart rests atop the arc of each drop, in the embrace of the sunrise. Within the arc, brilliant blue Skystones criss-crossed with […]

Wings has reconceived an old traditional style in a way that links earth and water and sky: conchas (shells) adorned by their own shell accents. Two oval medallions in the shape of old-fashioned conchas form the body of the earrings. Hand-stamped traditional symbols arc across the top of each to form a sunrise, at the […]

Sometimes Spirit sends our most vivid dreams in the moments just before the sunrise, visions of power to guide us around the hoop from dark of night to the light of a new day. With these earrings, Wings makes visible those links between night and day, earth and sky, by way of a Tree of Life: a guardian, a soldier, […]

Father Sun rises amid feathers and smoke, beginning the arc of his daily journey across the bridge of our prayers. Wings summons the spirit of process and path alike in this pair of earrings that pay tribute to renewing light of the dawn. Two round sterling silver conchas are cut freehand in a blossom pattern that […]

In traditional cultures, an eclipse — whether of the sun or of the moon — is an event of great symbolism and power. In some, they are omens of great and beneficial change; in others, warnings of dark days ahead. In all cultures, their practical effect is the same: to veil the light that shines […]

To grow and thrive, flowers instinctively turn their faces toward the warm radiance of the sun’s gaze. Wings has captured the same dynamic here with a pair of earrings that remind us similarly to seek out warmth and light. Each big, bold drop begins with a sterling silver concha in the shape of a perfect flat hoop, […]

Sometimes we need protection from the winds that seem to buffet us from all directions. Sometimes, great gifts and blessings arrive on those same winds. Wings captures the dichotomous nature of our journey around the hoop with these earrings, jet-black onyx and silver polished so highly it’s nearly white, that embody the power of the […]

Grandmother Turtle holds on her back our world in all its elemental glory. The plates of her shell are our earth and waters, mapping the land and the changing of the seasons. Wings captures those transformational moments in these earrings, sterling silver settings embodying the spirit of our Grandmother who gave our ancestors, the First […]

The trees sleep in winter, but of what are their dreams are made? Perhaps of warmer winds and longer light and cobalt skies that will allow them to dance in full flower once again. Wings gives their dreams form and shape with these beautiful teardrops: hand-cut sterling silver medallions, each with an ajouré Tree of […]

One is Dawn and one is Dusk, these indigo spirits who walk the thresholds of day and night, carrying with them the wisdom of worlds unseen. Wings calls them into being in the shape and shades of their time: faces deepest indigo, in the visionary form of Spirit’s Eye; robes touched with the silvery light of […]

By winter’s end, our dreams are filled with the signs and symbols of spring, of lengthened light and warmth and green. Wings captures this feeling of wistful hope given form and shape and life with these elegant earrings. Each is anchored by a square cabochon of brilliant lime jade, turned at an angle to assume a diamond’s […]

In some traditions, the spirits live in lodges in the sky, so distant that the lights from their fires are perceived by us here below as constellations of stars. Here, whole universes are formed from a pair of small, lightly scalloped conchas. On each domed silver shell, eight small lodges sit in a circle, each tipi […]

For peoples whose last half-millennium has been marked by invasion and colonization from without, by the colonizers’ breaking of every single treaty entered, by the need to be willing to stand as warriors just to ensure survival, peace is a precious thing indeed. Here, Wings has summoned its spirit by way of the contemporary symbol, instantly […]

Father Sun’s gaze is chatoyant warmth and golden fire, captured in a pair of earrings that embody this powerful spirit’s own eyes. Two solid, substantial sterling silver conchas lightly domed, repoussé-fashion. Each is stamped with concentric rings of traditional symbols: the sun’s coronal flare spiraling clockwise, extending into sunrise symbols. Beyond the small signs of the […]

In the high desert, golden light blends with turquoise skies to turn twilight a momentary green. Here, that color is captured in the soft teal shade of two round spiderweb turquoise cabochons shot through with inky black matrices. They open onto a pair of truly extraordinary cabochons of exceptionally high-grade Kingman spiderweb blue turquoise, the web […]

The color of the desert storm at sunset, of the clear mountain lake that catches the rain, the stones in these flowering drops manifest in shades of deepest indigo.

Just in time for the first blood moon in more than thirty years, Wings offers a pair of dancing spirits in the form of earrings. Fiery blood-red orbs rise above the four corners of the turquoise sky; below, a fringe of silvery moondust dances in twin trails down to earth. The settings are made entirely […]

In our world, Father Sun is red. Wings captures his image in its purest form, two perfect garnet spheres of deepest scarlet placed at the center of a silvery sky. The earrings themselves are perfect circles of solid silver, lightly domed, repoussé-fashion, into traditional conchas. On the convex side, each garnet opens into concentric orbits […]
