“Cloud Spirit” Necklace. $775. SOLD.


The latest entry in Wings’s signature series, The Mona Lisa on the Rio Grande, connects earth and sky in a single piece. This personifier of the Corn Maiden, a spirit whose qualities spring from the soil that nurtures and feeds The People, is clad in the regalia of the sky. Her tablita, or ceremonial headdress, is rendered in hand-cut sterling silver, hand-stamped in the symbolism of celestial blessings: the sunrise; the crescent moon; the thundercloud that brings the rain. The tablita cradles her head, embodied in an old natural turquoise cabochon of breathtaking beauty: deep sky blue, adrift with clouds of matrix the color of the famed Taos Pueblo light. The pendant hangs from hand-drilled “doughnut” beads in natural chocolate-matrix Royston turquoise backed by coppery-hued trade beads at either end, all strung over sterling silver chain. A view of the reverse, hand-stamped with more sacred symbolism, is shown below.

Sterling silver; Royston turquoise; trade beads
