A LITTLE ABOUT BUDDY

Buddy Lee is a respected & much loved Santa Fe artist who is known for having his own style & whose jewelry ranges from 'whimsical to whimsical modern,while maintaining a southwest style...He is the epitome of a 'true' artist,where he creates no 2 items alike.What you will get from Buddy, is jewelry made from start to finish,with everything created by hand & without the use of commercial manufactures.He lets the stones "speak & dictate" on how & what kind of artful piece they will sit in & he never knows till all that imagination of his,starts working like magic..Buddy takes from all things known to the SW & his jewelry designs are considered 'Wearable Art".

DESCRIPTION:

This Feathered design Native Maiden Kachina, is made with a mixture of hand cut Mosaic work & bezel set cabochons that give the Maiden her unique look.

The Maiden is made up of a huge cabochon of Blue Diamond turquoise that acts as the headdress,along with curved sculpted feathers.They sit atop of the whimsical looking trillion shape face, that has been carefully mosaic'd with a layout of Ebony wood,Apple coral & green Nevada turquoise.Each of these materials were precisely cut to fit, like pieces of a puzzle. The mixture lays flush within the bezel they sit in.

What I personally love about this pendant is the turquoise cabochon feather earrings that sit close to the face & are the anchor for the large feather that are beautifully detailed with realistic markings, given to the metal.The middle feather has a channel mosaic inlay of hand set Mediterranean Coral that sits in it's own bezel going down the center.

The chain is completely made by hand & people don't realize the time,love,patience & work that goes into making one & it's something to be appreciated!! You just don't see this in jewelry,since everyone is taking the "quick,fast route" & using commercially made ones. It is a large link style & acts like an extender, since you can put the hook anywhere you want,to wear it higher up on the neck or lower.

This is 'signature' Buddy & has the whimsical look he is so well known for! Its fun,one of a kind & so Santa Fe'an!!
