This is one of the most outstanding and special items I’ve had the pleasure to offer. The silver/inlay artist who created this pin/pendant is the famed Dennis Edaakie, one of the founders of the fine art of Zuni mosaic inlay jewelry. Mr. Edaakie and his wife Nancy are creators of some of the most desirable Native American inlay items ever made. Mr. Edaakie passed away 10 years ago and his wife is no longer producing jewelry. In the mid-1960s the Edaakie’s began creating inlay jewelry bearing the images of a variety of birds. This exquisite beauty features a duck in winged flight with the rushes of a wetland in the background. The duck is composed of abalone, coral, black jet, and mother-of-pearl. Of special note is the feathered design carved into the black jet wings, visible on close inspection, and the creative use of shimmering abalone used to simulate the iridescent head feathers of the duck. Bright blue turquoise inlay in a triangular pattern adorns the border. The reverse is signed D. EDAAKIE. This magnificent pin, which also has a generous bale and can be worn as a pendant, measures 1 ½ inches in diameter and weighs 13g. The quality of craftsmanship and design in this pendant/pin is superlative – truly heirloom quality. $475.00
