TINY FEATHERS CONNECT FATHER AND DAUGHTER When   the   artist   known   as   Silver   Hawk   began   looking   for   a   project   on   which   to   focus   his talent   more   than   30   years   ago,   the   idea   of   carving   feathers   out   of   bone   came   from   his daughter, Rebekah. Silver   Hawk   created   a   pair   of   feather   earrings   out   of   pieces   of   bone,   and   what   is   now Silver   Hawk   Studio   was   born.      The   studio   now   creates   more   than   30   varieties   of   small bone   feathers   carefully   carved   and   painted   to   replicate   the   feathers   of   birds   ranging from   the   golden   eagle   to   the   hummingbird.     The   feathers   are   featured   on   necklaces   and earrings available at Oldest House Indian Shop in Santa Fe. Silver   Hawk   passed   away   in   2004   after   teaching   his   original   techniques   to   other   carvers and   painters,   including   Rebekah,   who   continue   the   Silver   Hawk   legacy.      Rebekah,   the studio’s   resident   owner   and   artist,   ensures   that   the   designs   and   carving   techniques used   are   up   to   her   father’s   standards.      Rebekah’s   daughter   is   a   painter   in   the   family business as well and is the third generation carrying the artistic legacy forward. Based   in   Estes   Park,   Colorado,   the   Silver   Hawk   Studio artists   create   the   feathers   of   birds   ranging   from   raptors like   the   golden   eagle,   red-tailed   hawk   and   great   horned owl   to   their   colorful   cousins   the   hummingbird,   duck   and parrot.      The   studio   also   can   create   custom   feathers   from photos   sent   by   customers,   sometimes   in   honor   of   or   in memory of their pet birds. :We   get   a   lot   of   emails   and   cards   from   people   who   say, ‘I   have   an   amazing   connection   to   these   pieces.      I   can feel the good vibes you put into them,’” Rebekah   says,   “I   want   people   wearing   their   Silver   Hawk and   enjoying   it.      That’s   what   matters   to   me.      Like   my father,   I   want   to   spread   some   life   and   color   and   beauty around.” Rick   Smith,   owner   of   the   Oldest   House   Indian   Shop   in   Santa   Fe,   finds   that   Silver   Hawk Studio   jewelry   reflects   the   rich   Native   heritage   of   the   American   southwest,   recalling   the function feathers have in Native American life. “Silver    Hawk    jewelry    is    a    captivating    artistic    expression    that    serves    as    a    point    of reflection   on   the   use   and   vital   function   of   feathers   by   Native   Americans,”   Smith   says.     “Since   discovering   Silver   Hawk   nearly   fifteen   years   ago,   this   jewelry   has   served   our customers as a touchstone to their cultural experience while visiting.” See   these   tiny   treasures   today   at   the   Oldest   House   Indian   Shop,   215   East   De   Vargas Street in Santa Fe.
