“Climbing the Steps to the Sky” Pueblo Pin. $355. SOLD.

Ascending the roofs of the ancient village homes is a process of climbing the steps to the sky. Wings recreates the steps in the parapets, the crenellated rooflines, and a sherd of high-desert blue with this pin, wrought in the stylized form and shape of the Pueblo’s famed North House. The pin itself is cut freehand from sterling silver, each doorway saw-cut with a filament-thin blade; the narrow windows are hand-scored and all the traditional vigas, the support beams, hand-stamped across the front of each interconnected home. The posts of the traditional pine ladder, the means for reaching the rooftops and old methods of entry, are formed of sterling silver triangle wire, the rungs of sterling silver round wire, and the whole is overlaid directly onto the front of the pin. The pin’s surface area is 2.5″ wide; domed for wear, it measures 2-3/8″ wide by 1-1/4″ high from base to ladder’s uppermost tip; the turquoise moonstone cabochon is 3/16″ across (dimensions approximate).
