“Emerging Into First Light” Pueblo Pin. $355. SOLD.

One of the most beautiful times of day in the village is dawn, that moment of emerging into first light, flame-red skies turning the ancient walls rose gold. Wings calls the fire of the rising sun down to the old walls and rooflines with this pin wrought freehand in this stylized archetype of the Pueblo’s North House. The pin is cut freehand with a tiny jeweler’s saw, each doorway sculpted with the filament-thin blade. The narrow windows are hand-scored beneath each set of hand-stamped vigas, the support beams the stabilize the roofs of these homes that have stood a millennium and more. The traditional pine ladder, posts made of sterling silver triangle wire and rungs of sterling silver round wire, then overlaid carefully at the front, stands ready to allow ascendance into the early-morning light. Off to the right, the direction from which the dawn breaks over the pin’s real-life counterpart, a garnet sun glows with all the fire of autumn. 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 carnelian cabochon is 3/16″ across (dimensions approximate).
