Shaman Spirit Dancer

Raven Turquoise pendant


This is the largest Shaman Spirit Pendant I have made... all the metal work is hand fabricated by me, even the silver beads and cone ends and clasp.

There are several departures here. Hands instead of arrows, Glyphs in 14K Gold and Sterling Silver, a Bone face from Indonesia instead of Moonstone. This features a nice freeform Morenci Turquoise.

Outlier stations include a Zia cross with Turquoise, Sun symbol, Raven, and six pointed star with
Turquoise.

The beads, I assembled from a variety of sources, most especially obtained for this necklace. Turquoise from Arizona and China, Spiny Oyster Shell, several varieties of Antique Glass Trade Beads, Jasper, Lapis Lazuli, Sodalite, and Amazonite.

This is my most major piece of late... I have been working on it several months. I have developed my Shaman Spirit designs from inspirations of Ancient cultures and the Magic workers who walk between Worlds to guide us. At one point recently my designs collided with my love of the Southwest, especially Tucson, from our many visits to the famous Gem Shows. This was fueled by recently re-reading two favorite mythic fiction novels set in the desert,  "The Wood Wife" by Terri Windling and "The Wind in his Heart" by Charles de Lint. In the latter there are shape shifting "cousins" who can take human or crow forms... and for the first time I have added wings to my designs.
