Red Tree ~ Silver and Copper Shadowbox Slider

This sweet little slider pendant has a silver body with a copper top that is hand-carved and is coated with red enamel. Variations in color and texture on the enamel are due to the hand-crafted process of the piece. Classic Native American technique with a contemporary design.

This was a fun piece to make, and I will be experimenting with more designs and colors in the future!

Approximately one inch diameter, 1/4 inch deep. Signed on the back. One-of-a-kind. Hollow form, shadowbox.

Inner Fire and Spark ~ Double Bead Necklace

Inner Fire and Spark ~ Double Bead Necklace

Another one of my “Parent and Child” pieces, this necklace is comprised of two highly polished silver and copper shadowbox beads. The copper is reddened by heating to a very high temperature, and depending on the angle and the lighting, may look purplish maroon to a deep orange red.

The beads may be worn together, or separately, allowing for three different looks.

Signed on the back. Entirely hand-crafted and one-of-a-kind hollow form.

This was the first item to sell at the Prescott Indian Art Market last weekend.
