“Indian Corn Spirit” Necklace. $2,000. SOLD.

Indian Corn Necklace Full Resized

Wings has reimagined the Corn Maidens in a whole new yet wholly traditional way: No metaphorical Mona Lisa, this; this is Maiden as the very embodiment of the Indian Corn that sustains our peoples. A large single ear of a corn is hand-cut from sterling silver and set with fifteen tiny jeweled kernels in an array of brilliantly intense hues. At the stem, a single oval cabochon of agatized onyx, black with delicate white bands, forms the Maiden’s face; an overlay of hand-wrought, hand-stamped corn husks caught by the wind flow around her face like long locks set fee from their traditional bun. She hangs from a hand-made sterling silver bail suspended from a strand of old turquoise doughnut-style rondel beads interspersed with segments of highly polished sterling silver rondels; toward the each end, a series of round sterling silver beads in a Florentine finish alternate with four small round onyx beads. Bead strand hangs 18″ long; the pendant, including bail, is 3.5″ long by 2-1/8″ across at the widest point (dimensions approximate). Close-up view of the pendant shown below.

Pendant head: Sterling silver; agatized onyx
Corn kernels: Lapis lazuli, denim lapis, blue turquoise, green turquoise, gaspeite, jade, onyx, garnet, moonstone
Bead strand: Sterling silver; Florentine-finish sterling silver; green turquoise; onyx
