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   the   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   continues   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 color and life 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.
