The Mysterious Feather

MB

I love designing Jet Jewelry with Turquoise and Suede. 

I particularly love incorporating meaningful symbols and vintage heirlooms in these Jet pieces. One of my favorite symbols is the feather, often said to be a way that spirits can send us signs. Native Americans and other groups of people believe that feathers and birds carry meaningful and magical stories.  And, that the feather is a sacred link to the Creator.  I personally like to think that when I find a feather, in a mysterious way, it's a whisper from a loved one who has left our earth.  The whisper says:

"I'm here, I love you, I'm watching over you and I love you."  

When a client connects with one of my pieces that includes a feather, it means the world to me. I think I'll keep incorporating sterling silver feathers into Jet pieces.

Old is New

MB

There is nothing old that can’t be made new again.

I love creating one-of-a kind designs and this hand made unique piece fuses an old world Native American pendant that has been repurposed with 30 strands of shimmering faceted cut hematite gemstones giving new life to a beautiful heirloom. The intriguing center piece, a vintage silver dollar with Zuni turquoise inlay has been repurposed to function as a clasp.

The Zuni’s are noted for their precise turquoise, coral and other gem inlay. The most traditional Zuni style of jewelry is called petit point, which can be identified by tiny turquoise stones each supported in its own bezel. It is extremely time consuming work. The repurposed clasp is a piece of art and hand crafted using this technique that was passed down through the generations. That is why the value of a piece does not just come from the materials – the silver, turquoise and hematite but rather the value is derived from the artistic tradition that inspired the piece and the craftsmanship that brought it to life. 

That certainly is true with this work of art.
