260.00

DESCRIPTION:

This AMAZING pin,is made by Kewa Pueblo Folk Art artist "Mary Tafoya" who is the epitome of a TRUE ARTIST & never creates 2 pieces the same way!
Taking from the shapes of different cut materials & then placing them here & there,this ended up becoming a One of a Kind~"Single Flower in the Pot" piece of art that is 'framed' with white alabaster! This abstract picturesque piece is made of all hand cut materials that are mosaic inlaid upon a black jet backing.Her 'signature' Conus shell acts as the pot & also the swirly leaves.The flower is hand cut yellow-green Serpentine that she took from the larger piece & then 'sliced' into it,that then created the separated petals. There are irregular cuts of blue turquoise that act as the clouds.
This is a Pin/Pendant & comes with a small bale opening that would accommodate only a fine chain.


A real "Must Have"!!!
