“In the Light of the Red Willow Sun” Pueblo Pin. $355. SOLD.

In this place as old as time, the people live in the light of the Red Willow sun. In this newest of one of Wings’s oldest signature series, Wings calls the sun into position above a stunningly lifelike facsimile of the village’s famed North House, infusing it with a new structural spirit. It’s a Pueblo pin designed to replicate the ancient architecture that lines the plaza, thousand-year-old family homes layered atop each other beneath rooflines edged in oxidized silver. The pin is cut freehand from solid eighteen-gauge sterling silver using a tiny jeweler’s saw, each parapet clearly delineated above hand-scored walls, tiny divots hand-stamped to create the vigas, small chisel-end scores forming the windows, and larger chisel-end stamps evoking the doors. The traditional pine ladder is wrought in a whole new style, an overlay whose poles and rungs are created freehand of slender strands of sterling silver wire, soldered together and then fused to the front to connect earth and sky; at center left, a round amber sun rises to meet the the rooftops. The pin’s surface area is 2.5″ wide; domed for wear, it measures 2-3/8″ wide by 1-1/16″ high from base to ladder’s uppermost tip; the amber cabochon is 3/16″ across (dimensions approximate).
